BEWARE FRAUD!!! BRYAN MINZ EBAY NAME "THEFIDDLER" from Minnesota, USA, SELLING FAKE TUDOR WATCHES PASSING OFF AS AUTHENTIC, ORIGINAL AND 100% GENUINE!!!
BEWARE ALL!! I RECENTLY PURCHASED A SUPPOSSED VINTAGE AUTHENTIC ORIGINAL TUDOR ROSE DIAL SUBMARINER CIRCA. 1960S FROM THIS CRIMINAL "POWERSELLER" WHO ALSO ADVERTISES HIMSELF AS A MEMBER OF EBAY'S DISPUTE RESOLUTION AND "PILLAR OF THE EBAY COMMUNITY" ORGANIZATION SQUARETRADE. POSTED PICS ON THE MILITARY WATCH REVIEW SITE FOR THOUGHTS AND feedback and the consensus was that it was fake. Upon receipt of the watch it did not function properly, stopping regularly for 2 to 15 minutes per 12 hour period. Advised Mr. Mintz of this and promptly returned it for a refund. When he received it, he alleged that the watch was functioning perfectly, then the following day admitted problems, but refused to issue refund. Told him of the consensus on MWR about it being fake and again demanded full refund. He refused and responded that people on MWR don't know what they are talking about and that nobody can give proper opinion on authenticity of Tudors as records were not kept. Then stated that he would keep the watch and issue no refund and that I could could F____ OFF, or if I agreed not to leave negative feedback and post of my experience on any of the watch internet sites to return the watch and only partial refund of $100 less paypal fees!!!! Under duress, WITH EBAY AND PAYPAL DOING THE USUAL IGNORE AND HELP NO ONE ROUTINE, I said to send the watch back to me and give me the partial refund. Upon receipt, I PROMPTLY took the watch to my local Rolex certified watchmaker with over 30 years experience. He immediately groaned upon inspecting it and advised me, upon having great difficulty getting the caseback off due to not fitting the standard Rolex case back removal tool, that the case was a Hong Kong fake along with the jubilee bracelet, bezel, crown, stem and possibly the dial. All engravings of serial #, model # and caseback also confirmed fake!!! I post below the link to this criminals' listing and ebay name so none of you fellow watch collectors and enthusiasts get duped by this scumbag! I have reported him to eBay and Paypal with the usual nonresponse and complete lack of condern or action. I will be reporting him to the Minnesota law enforcement authorities and FBI for fraud and mail fraud. PLEASE BEWARE AND REPORT FRAUD TO ALL FELLOW COLLECTORS AND ENTHUSIASTS!
