  • Beware of this Seller - boss9878 , Tom 1778

    Bought a watch from this forum on the 2nd week of November (should be 11th or 12th Nov 2009). It is a tissot t-touch asking for s$650. He acknowledges himself as Tom (User ID boss9878 @ mobile # 92379878) on the phone.

    We met in Jurong area and I took over the watch and paid him $650. He has mentioned that he is not familiar with the watch thus he does not really know how to set the compass. He has also given 1 year warranty for that watch and claimed that he had a share of 2nd hand watch shop

    Being techie myself, I thought it is alright since there is warranty and also manual in it .

    2 weeks passed and I am still unable to get the compass set probably. Thus, a sms was sent to him and he redirected me to send it to the Omega Service centre.

    The service Centre confirmed that the compass is faulty and the cost for the repair will be around 300+. Service centre doesnít accept the warranty card as there wasnít any AD stamp on it.

    I have tried contacting him since then but he never reply anymore. I have tried calling his number and this starhub number is no longer in service.

    I have therefore concluded that he has an intention to cheat.

    Iím publishing this incident in this website to alert all forum members to take additional care with dealing with this person:

    User ID: boss9878, Tom 1778
    Mobile: 92379878, 83281778
    Address: He claimed that he stays in Bukit timah
    Work: He claimed that he work in Natsteel and look after a few factories in the region.
    Look: talkative man about late 40 or early 50 and about 1.7m.

    Thanks for sharing.

    A guy who part-own a 2nd hand watch shop, but does not know the function of his own watch, and yet promise a one-year warranty, is indeed very suspicious... :roll:

      Sorry to hear about this Bro. Once I nearly dealt with this user but his unfriendly gesture and totally no nego, turned me off.

      Hope all is well with you bro. Thanks for sharing and hope you will sort things out.

      Cheers.

        This joker has a few accounts iirc, I had a bad experience with him before(thru sms) To think a guy who's been in the watch trade for 20years(LOL, crap), succumbs to this resort.

              Hahaha...The linked thread is so darn funny...Would never have thought that there would be such a person trying to do business here.

              Hope this thread serve as a lesson for the rest of us.

                    I think his real job is an English language butcher, looking at his posts makes me cringe and wonder if he knows where the caps lock key is.
                    Still, I get a kick whenever he claims how low offers will not be 'ENTAINTED', or how he wants to sell vintage cowboy watches at ostentatious prices without even willing to post photos.
                    Seems like a low-life head case who should have been banned together with his other 'persona' on this forum when he threatened bro Leftfield who rightfully pointed out his contravention of forum rules. And he used yet another one of his many user-Ids to respond!

                              Gangster or not, this is not appropriate conduct.
                              My sympathies to TS who got taken for a ride.
