116710BLNR Too good to be true?

I came across this batman with an amazing price.
http://forums.watchnet.com/index.php...o=844076&rid=0

It is an amazing price and it all seems a bit too good to be true. I searched and found nothing at all on the seller. Absolutely zero internet history makes me a bit worried.

Some friendly advice.

Buyers who are looking for a good deal but have not researched how scams work are the ideal target for scammers.

If it looks too good to be true ,it is too good to be true and not good.

Buy from a trusted seller and stay away.

Just because it may be a legit watch in the pics, doesnt mean you will receive what is in the pic

Why is the warranty card expired? Shouldn't it be 5 years with a green tag?

I can't read it either, but it was posted in the ad description.

"Comes complete with all boxes, manual, expired warranty card etc."

Check out this thread:

https://www.rolexforums.com/showthread.php?t=537167

A few similarities:

Same way to describe the watches
Location, only USA with No state
Only email to contact , no phone #
Attractive price
Miss information, in 2015 green tags were included not the brownish ones
No feedback

Watchout.

Asked the guy to send me a photo of the watch in front of a screenshot of my email and he said "its in my safe deposit box". Asked for a face-to-face transaction. Response is "sorry don't ever have time away from work". All total scam signs!
