I just got burned by this seller of aftermarket bracelet.
Claiming he's Scott Hawkins, manager of PartnerTech Solutions - a partner of HP, even provided his phone number (which I stupidly didn't check).

Asked me to paypal his source in Asia since his paypal ID can't accept fund, which I stupidly did. Should've been suspicious when he asked me to state the transcation details as payment for 'Ipod plus extras from the Apple trading forum'.
Paypaled him 250$ since 2 Feb. but no bracelet until now - not even an EMS tracking number as promised. Everytime I checked he always came up with different excuse of 'shipping delayal due to chinese new year' or 'president's day holiday'.

This is my first time experience getting scammed, I did checked for his references which he provided (2 ebay positive seller references). I didn't check further as his pics looks very reassuring and I idiotically think he is a Paneristi.

Pls let this be my lesson (as you can see what a dunce I am for not taking hints), not yours - beware of seller like this. Hope this one could stand as an example of how easy you can lose your hard-earned dough. A funny side of it is, this time it's an Indonesian who get scammed, quite contrary to popular belief

Pls be forwarned, here are his posts in this forum:

2. January 30th: http://www.network54.com/Forum/message? ... 1107154276

His email is partnertech@gmail.com and his 'supplier' in asia is Yu Hsuan Lee (yaochiensu649@hotmail.com).

rgds,
Arif

P.S. If anybody know there is a way to report this to paypal or authorities who can do something pls email me - thanks.

I had some deals with him in the past and every time it was a lot of communication (^#&^%$#) to get things completed. I think some other members might have his address and/or phone number.

Good luck!

I was suckered into something similar recently by a Frank Gianni in Argentina.

I should know better - been at this on-line game dealing with people all over the place since 1999. The problem is that as the majority of people you deal with are genuine, perhaps we get to get a little too trusting. I lost $600. On the good side, at least I haven't got so cynical yet that I mistrust everyone - I'd hate that.

Having said that, I was sold a 'near mint' piece recently by a regular Timezoner that had a short bracelet, was heavily scratched and was missing the paperwork. He wouldn't take it back (it was a US-to-UK purchase) except at such heavy cost for me that it was cheaper to send it to Breitling for a link and a refurb than it was to send it back (I'd already paid out customs fees and was having to swallow shipping both ways and all paypal fees). I've been planning a post on Dealwatch but it just shows, some 'regulars' can be just as deviant as people unknown to us. I'm sure this guy would have turned up some impeccable references - but would have made no difference to my deal.

Hi Scott,

Something similar happened to me purchasing an anonimo three glasses at ebay paying using paypal. I made a claim at paypal and ebay and recovered about 50% of total amount and the seller was pushing out of ebay. Well, I didn´t get the watch but felt as "justice done".

This was a lesson for me but I go on trading with thousands of eyes.

Best regards

I paid him $400 for a Pam 111 and actually got the watch. I was very happy with it for 6 months until the crown stem broke. I foolishly sent it back to him as he said he could repair it. After several excuses as to why he couldn't get it fixed, I have not received my watch back and he has stopped returning my emails. He has another email address:
blondincharg@adelphia.net. I guess all we can do is spread the word and consider it a lesson learned. If you do manage to bring any kind of legal action against him, feel free to contact me for my experiences with him.
