In August 2011 I had decided to sell my Breitling Navitimer watch and contacted Watchbrokers.com.

I sent the watch to them via Federal Express, they recieved and appraised my watch at $4,750 then advised they could sell it within 10 days if I priced it lower than the appraised value. I agreed and set the low price of $2,995.

After 20 days I contacted them and was advised that they had offers, but were holding out for a higher price.

By 01 September 2011 I was beginning to become suspicious, that perhaps I had been tricked and that this company was operating a scam. Further requests for information regarding my watch went unanswered.

On 21 September I went to their website to check on my watch and it had been removed from the section of "watches for sale". Great I thought, it has been sold.

My attempts to log on to my account on their customer website section proved impossible - I received messages saying "no such email, account ID" etc was found!

Further telephone calls and emails to the company have gone unanswered - I have been scammed!

That is when a web search found this website with many reports of the fraud(s) made to other customers - if ONLY I had read this information first. [continued below]....
...... if only.

I feel that as an individual hiring an attorney to go after this company and retrieve my watch will most likely cost me more in legal fees that the watch is worth and i believe that Watchbrokers.com are baking on this.

I would willingly and grateful participate in a class action suit against these people including appearing as a witness at my own expense.

According to DEX,

AUTHOR: anonymous - (United States of America)

and the fulton county assessor, the owner, richard latona, lives at

405 Brentwood Dr NE
Atlanta, GA 30305-3204

and his phone # is
(404) 841-2459

Maybe you could call him and find out why he ripped you off?  Probably not, s**theads like that just get another disposable cell phone and number when they're done stealing for the week.
I'll bet you could send something to his house, maybe a lawsuit...your state consumer protection act probably lets you collect attorney's fees/court costs in the judgement, you should look it up.  You can attach a lien on whatever he owns with a judgement, and if you're lucky enough to live in my state, after 5 years of the lien going unpaid, you can simply foreclose on whatever the lien is attached to, so attach it to the house.  I bet it would feel wonderful, sitting on the corner in a lawn chair while you watched the guy who ripped you off get evicted by the sheriff.

That's what I would do.
