  • :::::::: SCAM ALERT :::::::: Sellers Beware!

    Syndicate scammers, possibly involving North European parties, working with local SG syndicates, using PAYPAL as means of payment, may be active here @ SWX

    Telltale signs
    1) dont ask much
    2) dont bargain (too good to be true)
    3) very busy and cannot collect themselves
    4) insist they pay by PAYPAL
    5) he will arrange local pickup (not by him because he is very busy)

    How to avoid this type of scam - strictly in THIS ORDER
    1) if you choose to accept PAYPAL, make sure you draw the funds out to your bank account FIRST
    2) insist on knowing the ID of the appointed pick up person
    3) made known that you will require the ID to be verified before the watch can be released
    4) there MUST BE NO meetup till you see the funds in your bank account

    Wishing you guys safe trading always at the Pits
