    Buying a watch off Ebay

    Never bought a watch off Ebay. Wanna buy one for my dad for his birthday.

    Got my eye on a designer watch. If it's fake, will I be covered.

    Plan is to buy it and take it to a store for verification.

    It's fake. Yes you will be covered.

    check feedback of the seller......bet it speaks volumes............be very wary!

    One of my work colleagues father in laws buys supposedly genuine items gets them checked some turn ou fake he lets ebay know and they give him a refund and tell him to dispose of said item. Never done it myself though.

    strange that they never ask me to dispose of any fake phones i bought in the past......I had to send mine back to the seller .........the cheek of it !!

    Item number ?

    It's 100%, but you can never tell if any or all are genuine sales.

    Just have to tell them it is illegal to send fake items in the post and your not willing to break the law, apparently they can ask you to prove you have destroyed it ( dunno how:?, video of you smashing it up maybe!) but they never did when I bought my mrs a links of london bracelet, just got refunded and gave the fake links to her mum lol and bought her a genuine one from fraser heart!

    Fake goods ..............on ebay . Never

    Seems ok, I'd be a bit wary about anyone (not a shop) being able to lay their hands on that many TAG's though. Also for someone selling £1500+ watches their ads / descriptions are not very professional.

    You have to prove the phone is fake. I had it with a nokia. the seller wouldnt budge and said no returns. I took the phone into the nokia service centre who confirmed it was fake but refused to do me a letter. So i had to do a "not as descriped" claim and send it back tracked.

    looks legit

    I agree, If i were you i would email the seller and ask if he knows it is 100% not a jekal. and remind him you will be taking it to the jewelars to check the day after you get it.


    Going on my experience with the phone i got i would check with the shop you are checking it at that a) they are a tag dealer and b) happy to give you a letter that states its fake, if it is.

    hes selling a lot of watches, but tbh it doesnt look shady, the watches look to be in good nick, he wouldnt be getting away with so many if they were fake cos all the watch savants looking for a bargain would be reporting him, plus the other watches havent gone for stupid prices, they are going for the sort of price you would expect a second hand piece to go at.

    Seller seems genuine enough but this is a fairly old model ,

    the only dodgy thing would be how is getting the watches lol, I dont doubt the authenticity of them but to have a lot of them regularly for sale with boxes and papers lol he must know someone who has a lorry load of them

    +1 go to his earliest feedback and all the listing are private which is odd for somebody selling something like watches. The feedback that mentions a watch in the comments are from the same users all with low feedback a couple of them no longer members (suspended I assume). I know my self how easy it is to get feedback. I did it so paypal wouldn't hold funds, sell a couple of hundred wallpapers, private listing, buy some wallpapers and you've got 300+ positive feedback and will look genuine when selling higher priced items. Be cautious OP, definitely get this checked if you do buy it. None of it add's up, it looks fake imo anyway, the more you look into the more it looks like it will be.

    There is no way of definitely finding out whether they are fake (until you get it), but if you are at all worried then walk away.

    Everything about the seller looks good so maybe it is one of those genuine bargains. it is however a lot of money to be undecided about.

    If I was you I'd look into contacting one of the previous buyers of the same watch. You never know they may tell you they had it checked out and it was genuine. I have done this in the past.
