    Good job in flagging these — they’ve apparently been removed from the eBay website.

    Ya, I called Ebay and asked if they thought the listings were fraudulent. They said definitely.

    The Peruvians must have some hefty bills to pay this month - they've been putting up their scams 5x+/day in the past two weeks. The listings are being removed VERY quickly by eBay, but they go right back up with the exact same listing & photos almost as quickly

    Best rule of thumb in this situation is, hold off on buying anything on eBay from Lima, Peru for now

    Oh huh. Obviously can't see them since they've been taken down but next time you see them, be sure to grab screenshots of the photos they use so we can keep an eye out.

    How is this done? All the same watches and a completely different seller with what seems to be a stellar sales record.

    I would guess the account was hacked. Perhaps the current seller clicked the scammer's link and entered his username and password.

    Interesting - the so called 'eBay store' is pointing to a website in the add-items.bid domain, which was registered a few days ago. It's too bad eBay doesn't catch that kind of embedded obviously fraudulent URL automatically.

    It means the link given in the item description does not point to eBay, but to some other domain, which was created only six days ago, and for which the owner information is hidden (fields are empty, comment says to contact the registrar).

    +1 of avoiding anything from Peru. It may be tempting but it’s a scam. I’ve been reporting everything that pops up that is clearly a scam.
