    Is that really his name? Robert 'Bob' Long?
    Of Bungay?

    Just checking some facts.... Was the 2012 seller of a fake tudor watch serial number 860976 , also called Robert Bob Long from Bungay in Norfolk? Because that would be a coincidence. Asking for a friend.

    Cheers Tom
    Follow him on eBay and post whenever he puts something up on auction. And post on other watch forums as well. ;)

    I’m still a little unsure as to his full name and where he lives. Can somebody please enlighten me...?

    Yeah, that would be a shame because stuff on the internet apparently stays there for ever...!

    I think it is him. See EADT for:



    Looking at that, "Mr Long...lives in Kirby Cane, near Bungay", in a house with a distinctive fence, near a national speed limit sign that is opposite a transformer on a pole...need I go on?


    Unless it wasn't his own house...

    This thread is getting a bit too much... Surely Jeweller Bob, from Bungay in Suffolk has enough on his plate, what with having 2 cars with similar registrations getting mixed up at the Dartford crossing: https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/173095...in-his-garage/



    That's jeweller Bob Long from Bungay in Suffolk. Yes, Suffolk. Not Norfolk.

    Bungay is in Suffolk, but I think kirby cane is in Norfolk?

    TZ member and fellow mini afficianodo bongo is also from Bungay I think. Which is in suffolk. Apparently.

    Sobering read and really glad you got your money back. Good to see others on the forum supporting you and also reporting him to Ebay etc.

    Like the others, I hope that anyone searching for him finds this thread for Bob Long from Bungay and is suitably warned off.

    Oh okay. So Robert Victor Bob Long, also known as littlegems121 on eBay, is from Kirby Cane in Norfolk which is near Bungay in Suffolk. Got it.

    Thanks again for all your support guys, it’s always nice to know who your friends are and together we can do our best to ensure he doesn’t pass this pup off to anyone else.

    I asked him what he wanted for it and he said £5K so if it has been legit it would have been a great buy, I must admit I don’t follow Tudor and Rolex prices like omega but I assumed it was worth £6-8K, having researched after I bought it they seem to do quite a lot more.

    His price was also another obvious ‘trap’ to lure me in and get it sold quickly.

    Ultimately these things happen and at the end of the day I got my money back. What bothered me wasn’t the situation it was his bare face lies throughout and then making me drive 7 hours round trip and feel grateful he’d refunded me when all along he knew categorically it was fake.......

    And if he can afford to spend ridiculous amounts on ridiculous license plates, clearly he's not pauper. Which makes it even worse, to think he would do all that while being rather well-off. I guess some peoples brains are wired quite differently that what would be known as "normal". He definitely deserves more than just some negative search terms on Google, I do hope he will get in trouble eventually and pay his dues.

    I hope he doesn't have any trouble with his (apparently fully original barn-find) £50k mini cooper.
    It does make you wonder what else might not be quite as it seems.

    Bungay is in Suffolk.

    It’s where my mums half of the family hail from and where I have spent a great deal of my life.

    Bongo lives in Beccles, tell him it’s Bungay and a tenner says he will get a real grump on.

    All that aside, what a scummer

    Nice car. I might hop on eBay and ask a few questions about it.

    I'd like to think I know most of the people in my trade.

    Never heard of him.

    Anyone know the details of the pawnbroking business he was a part of?

    Excellent read, lacking only some audio and video recordings with which it would have scored top marks

    Lots of places like that: My parents live in a little village in Suffolk, but it's near Diss, which is in Norfolk, so their address is:

    Village
    Diss
    Suffolk

    and around 30% of their mail is "edited" by some bright spare in the Royal Mail with either a scribble or a yellow sticker telling them the address is wrong. Luckily, they have a clever local postman who understands.

    My mate lives Palgrave, also outside Diss, technically he's in suffolk, but his postal town is also diss. Its the IP postcode that gives it away. Although as they say, A day spent out of Norfolk is a day wasted.

    As sir John betjeman once said :
    East anglia, cut off on three sides by the sea, and on the fourth by British rail

    I think as per post 1 by OP, this is the guy:



    Wish I could ask the eBay seller if a fake Tudor Monte Carlo comes with the car.... I double-dog dare someone here to do that.

    Scammer alert: Bob Long, Bungay, Norfolk, Tudor Monte Carlo 7032/0, serial 860976

    Great read and those pictures are so Swiss Tony of Norfolk!

    Going by the evidence against him it seems like he is trying to recoup pride in himself for being turned over in the first place as he doesn’t seem short of a few quid, rather than deal with his seller (probably way too late now) he’s trying to pass the problem off to some other unsuspecting buyer, if his mindset is this way then he should never be trusted with any sales..
