Hey Ristis,
Just a quick heads up that there's another scammer lurking the boards. I put up a post on the Collector's Market stating I was interested in purchasing a Pam572 (which I am, by the way). I quickly received a reply that someone had one for sale and to email him, which I did. That email returned a reply from this "seller" offering me the piece for $5,850 with photos lifted directly from this ebay posting:http://www.ebay.com/itm/Panerai-Radiomi ... Sw0kNXgulj

The scammer's login name was. "Andrea"

(Login vintagewatch65) and the IP address was 23.27.244.38.

The scammer's email address was: vintagewatch@net-shopping.com.

Sorry if this type of thing isn't allowed on here, but I've been scammed once already by some shithead and I'm still effin' pissed about it, so I'd hate for this to happen to someone else. Beware of this a-hole, hope nobody falls for his shenanigans.

For the record, here's a link to my post:http://www.network54.com/Forum/353390/t ... TB-+Pam572

Have a good one!

Paneristi Collector's Market is thick with scammers, unfortunately.

I love your vigilance in helping people flush them out, Josh K, you've saved more than one person I'm sure. I know I've been intrigued before and then seen your followup posts outing people as scammers, so thank you and keep it up!
