    Just reported these to eBay

    EBay seller with 436 positive rating (albeit overwhelmingly as a buyer - last sale for an iPhone got negative feedback). And his listings "proudly" display 100% positive feedback".

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rolex-Yac...m/123815541828

    Described as 2017 but "Just had service done on it by local Rolex dealer which cost £520.00 nothing needed done." ??!


    Has typical faker's guarantee paper (not card) and bracelet has plastic wrapping on - again, typical fake watch style.



    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ROLEX-DEE...k/123815990037

    DEEPSEA and Oyster Perpetual Date on the dial is wrong. Inside of the box is tatty as fake boxes usually are. Close up image is of a different watch!

    EBay may take down the listing but they should just delete the account. It says everything about the value of eBay feedback scores.

    Absolutely, these are fractionally 'cleverer' than the average fake listing. The plastic bezel protector on the SD, for example, and the wordy description. If I can spot a fake, it's got to be pretty obvious.

    If you right click the close up Deep-Sea image and "search google for this image" the only results are instagram accounts and a Replica watch site (replica watches VIP).

    Absolute scum.

    eBay will be too slow to act.

    I just put in a fantastical bid of a trillion £ and wait for auction end. Then report it and explain my reasons.

    I've done it a few times now, but mouse is right – you could do it all day and it still wouldn't make a dent.

    Now looking at that listing, all looks good to me, even the bit when the seller is worried himself about being scammed and will not release until funds have cleared. One reason I would never buy anything like this off Ebay as you just cant tell. Well done for highlighting things like this though.

    £2.90 economy delivery on the YM .

    Bargain.



    Have a look at the photos of the YM , two different watches , one silver faced copy and one Rhodium faced real one.

    I’ve messaged him asking him which one is for sale , the snidey copy or the real one .

    Quick edit ,

    He’s replied through eBay, apparently it’s the flash from his camera which makes the dials look different colours.

    Ha ha.

    A piece of what looks like a home printed paper proclaiming “a full 1 year warranty” on a 2017 Rolex?

    Run away, quickly!

    No longer active but still visible, oddly. Maybe he has take them off thanks to the efforts of those who messaged him pointing out that his attempted fraud had been noted.

    2017 watch. One year paper warranty "card". What happened to the plastic card and the other 4 years warranty?

    This turd will only accept PayPal. They address them selves in no man's land knowing most will ask for it to be posted.

    If you don't like his terms, don't buy it. Simple as that.

    He is being very stupid by insisting on payment by PayPal and collection in person (or, just as bad, by the buyer's courier), especially for something of that value! That's just asking to be scammed.

    To those who can spot a fake... what's your opinion of this one?

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rolex-Oys...53.m1438.l2649

    Sadly, I wouldn't know what to look for and even though its not a million miles away from me, it's pretty pointless me turning up to inspect it. Happy to be told what to look for though!

    Not sure but several things would put me off:


    • Someone's added a dodgy card (for a watch that predates guarantee cards)
    • Putting "99p Start Wow" in the title
    • Bulls**t amateur marketing saying "Rare U Serial". Says who??
    • "purchased in Australia ended up here some how" How does he know that - without knowing how it "ended up here"?

    All good points. I asked for a photo showing the serial number between the lugs. Surprisingly, he's away on business so unable to do so - but reiterates it's genuine :-)

    I love it when they say "100% genuine" as if that is worth anything whatsoever!

    Brass necked g!t has relisted:

    I've reported both as (1) fakes and (2) fraud.

    Has typical faker's guarantee paper (not card) and bracelet has plastic wrapping on - again, typical fake watch style.

    DEEPSEA and Oyster Perpetual Date on the dial is wrong. Inside of the box is tatty as fake boxes usually are. Close up image is of a different watch!

    I have similarly reported a guy obviously putting up fake adverts to sell classic cars and they don’t seem to cut the account .
