Please be careful of this tricky Internet dealer in San Fransisco, I have recenlty bought a rolex explorer II with original papers and box from this fraud Internet dealer. The name of this fraudulent dealer is called "A&E Watches" The fact is that I sent them the money through bank wire transfer, I paid $7200 for the watch plus additonal $48 for the UPS shipping cost with 100% insurance.
After they received the money, they pretended to send me the watch with all accessories via UPS with insurance. Unfortunately, when I received the watch, I found the watch was missing in the box but only received the box, all the accessories and the papers. Moreover, I found the paper is NOT the proper paper, on which I could not find the serial number punched or written on it.
It only has the model number 16550 written on it. Obviously, this is only a replacement added paper but not original one. So, I contacted the seller immediately for the missing watch. Initially, we presumed the watch was lost during the postage because the seller declared that he has sent me the watch. Then, I approached UPS immediately about the lost of the watch.
After checking with UPS, I found that the seller "A&E Watches" in fact had NOT insured with UPS of the watch because UPS will not insure the watch for the value of $7200... However, when I asked the seller about the insurance claim, he told me he is applying the insurance with UPS and is awaiting for the claims from UPS.
Obviously, this was a fraud because I have checked with UPS and they ensured that this shipment has never been insured in any case. They also told me that A&E Watches had a history of complaints with them for this type of attempted fraud and was on a special watch list with UPS.
Finally, after a series of my warnings, this fraud seller still refused to give me back the $7200 saying that I must have stolen the watch and claimed it wasn't in the box. This lying seller repeated and repeated to lie on me, and to now, I still have not received my money back.
Hereby, I remind all the Internet watch fans : Do not deal with this Fraud dealer. If you have any friends are dealing with them, please remind them to STOP!!!
Thank you for your kind attention.
San Fransisco, California
