Crap - thanks to Ron for a quick PM here - my name was hacked on Omega Forums and looks like I "scammed" a few people already today.
However I am now banned and cannot post anything in my defense
Anyone here a member there that can get in touch with a mod for me
Thanks
Mike

Sent a PM to DLT222 and asked him how you can contact him. Hope this gets sorted quickly. '

Also sucks for the guy that wired $5k to the scammer https://omegaforums.net/threads/scammed ... tch.72304/

If you haven’t already, changing passwords everywhere would be a good idea.

If I recall, this isn't the first time this has happened to you. You need to be careful about (a) following links sent to you n PMs and (b) don't use the same password for different forums. I've seen this kind of shitty scam attempted on DWC, too. Hope you can get on top of it.

Mike, I did a mod alert on the post you made on WUS. You should post post a warning in the feedback forum, too, advising everyone to disregard any messages about things that are being sold under your account. Hopefully, you've already changed your log in there and on other forums.

This stuff is so easy for some people.....


I just got an email a few days ago saying my email account was accessed in China so I had to change everything. Scares me, I have all types of info in my email folders.

And last fall I had an issue when I bought a Sinn from Hong Kong, dude said it was in excellent Condition. Case was crap. Dial scratched up. Bezel with missing paint. And I am not lying when I say this- when I went to pick it up at the PO they had it wrapped in plastic bags. The box wreaked of cat piss. So it must have been pissed in during shipping?

Anyway, needles to say I asked for a refund. He refuses... I fill out a PayPal claim and ship it back. He told PayPal that the box was empty when he received it which froze my account. I called an explained to them that he was refusing to refund me and he sent threatening email. I’m almost certain they froze his account, because a week or so later they close the case and said the seller found the watch.


Anyway- I’m afraid that asshole is the one who attempted to get into my email account.
DEATH FROM ABOVE
