This scam is another of the London group...

And it seems he is using more than one vrf ID. Truscanyrose? Very cute.

The fellow who alerted me wrote me the following (I have removed his name at his request):

"Hello John,
Thanks for for fast reply.
Below, is the name and address the person gave me.

Today, I asked him if he was a moderator on TZ. He indicated he was on VRF. I tracked you down
through your posts on that site.

This person has been acting oddly since he responded to my WTB for an Omega X-33 a couple of weeks ago.
I did a little sleuthing early on and found he had stolen the photos he provided to me from someone else's sale of some nine months ago."

(And this is the email and address he is referring to...)

"From: John Ireland (truscanyrose@gmail.com)
Date: December 8, 2011 2:38:47 PM EST
To: (removed at request of fellow who alerted me)

Subject: Re: Watch

Good to hear from you, Your address has been noted for shipment, I
will ship item once payment is confirmed. Go ahead with payment VIA
Western Union to my details below

If any of you visit other watch forums, please pass on the information.
If any of you have access to the London police, pass this on to them.

Regards...the real...

I would play with these lowlife cockroach scums for a while and frustrates them as payback. Thanks for alerting Mr Ireland.

Cheers,
Chris also the real LunetteVerde

is always worth a gander to see if you've been given a correct address.

That post code and St name definitely do not work.

Everything is f**ked out here, I need to pay bills, school fess and
the rest. No work that can give $150 at the end of the month. I wish I
could get a job and stop this. Am so sorry but I need a life


-----------------------------------------

I think the scammer is more or less saying that its Bush's fault.
