That kinda sucks but doesn't have to mean anything. And if you're in contact with him outside of the forum, nothing to worry about, really. His profile is unavailable, so I couldn't see his post history and possibly a reason for the ban, but from the few random posts I found, nothing suspicious there.I've just sent it over to bustylove, log in here only to see that he's been banned.
this sort of **** could only happen to me.
Sorry to worry you chap. I created a new account to change my username and got auto banned. Its all sorted now though.the difficulty is that all i have is a name and address. i just messaged a guy on facebook that i'm 99% sure is him, so hopefully he gets back to me.
in the meantime i'll ask the moderators what's up. thanks guys.
I found this thread while making a final search before esclating to PayPal a dispute about a service with Mat. Communication with him was fairly regular and highly specific (telling me exactly how he had repaired my watch) right up to the point at which I paid the final fee due. Then, nothing more since July. I sent him an ETA-2824 movement to service and fit within a black PVD Fortis Flieger. Didn't include the strap, so case only. I have to assume the worst, that he is looking to fence what are a sizeable selection of stolen goods. If anyone sees such a watch come up for auction, please send me a DM.
I had the same initial feeling as you, however I am not quite so gracious as you have been as I do feel that it was not beyond the capabilities of any of his friends to have posted some kind of alert on this forum as to what was going on.This is uncomfortable to read and I will be totally happy to pay all the necessary fees to get my watch back once Mat is recovered. I hope that it is just a really bad coincidence that when I paid for the return of the watch, his injuries struck and he's been unable to respond to my messages for many months. Like the other contributor said, the watch doesn't have huge monetary value, but it was something I was looking forward to wearing as a daily in lieu of my recently refurbished Seamaster that makes me scared I'll scratch it LOL.
