Just a heads up to let you know. They are getting better every time, man it is getting harder and harder to sell or buy a watch without doing a great deal of due diligence.

Be careful.

asking about a PAM that I had sold on the collector's market.

Despite the fact that the listing shows that the watch is sold, the person was offering me my asking price....

So I went to the site (didn't click on the link though) and guess it's a search engine for watches I've not come across before. Certainly found stuff I've listed elsewhere and if someone were really impersonating me, I think people who I actually know would tell me.

Funny thing is some people who are interested in a watch I have listed actually send the link to the post, but I'm so paranoid about clicking on links that I just go to the site and verify it that way. Can't be too careful...
