    Hacked accounts: okzbow

    Hi,

    Got a message from this account saying interested in my Panerai. No activity in multiple years apart from 1 post. Asked instantly to message outside of forum. When looking in their profile see they are creating messages to multiple other forum members.

    Sorry if genuine but thought I’d flag in case others had suspicions.

    Mike

    The account seems to be viewing a lot of people’s profiles and send a lot of PM’s.

    Someone’s been a busy boy this morning then. Maybe they have genuinely come in to some money and they are trying to buy their ultimate watch collection!? On the other hand, maybe not...

    I've had one as well for my Bulova. Looked suspicious, so thought I'd check. Glad I did.

    I wonder if he needs some new Nudie jeans to go with his unlikely haul of watches? I might message him

    Heh. To be fair, I think if most of us won obscene money on the Euromillions, we'd place some large and significant orders with various shops and dealers. But I suspect that's not what's happening in ths case.

    I'm feeling left out, he doesn't seem to want to buy my AV setup.






    Then again, nobody else seems to want to buy it either.

    Me too! Wants to but my Zenith even though I don’t have one and have a DJ listed!

    This is a phishing attempt

    Me too and he replied saying can I confirm the listing is mine.

    The link he provides goes to a website that looks like TZ-UK but is not. This is a phishing attempt to get your password.

    Don't click the email link and don't login. If you have then change your password immediately in the real TZ!

    He’s messaged me. I didn’t put my password in though.

    Clearly he was trying to hoover up the whole of sales corner as I had message for mine as well. Clearly a bot or something as it was clear they did not realise both watches were mine and when I asked for more information...silence!

    It will be interesting to find out who okzbow originally got a PM from to get his account compromised

    I think it started with okzbow being offered one of these...

    Back off everyone. He hasn't got money for all your watches and the Lumix camera I have on SC that he is DEFINITELY interested in....

    That's a fake. It has too many hands.

    Okzbow may be comprised but please dont tarnish me with the same brush as my activity may not be the same as you guys but I've had people on here that have vouched for my purchases. I'm sorry for suggesting talking off offline but I dodnt realise this would be a problem, I'm more than happy to talk on here as suggested in the PM.

    Husband=Mark, wife=Rebecca. Please take my username off of this thread title as my name doesn't deserve to be tarnished just because of timing. I'd like to talk to you about buying your watch if your interested. I'm sorry you've been messed about by someone else but that isnt our intention in any way.
