Thanks for all the support gentlemen, The fat bastard Pete Conlon never did do the right thing, I would assume it's hard for him to even talk on the forums anymore without somebody bringing this up, a true scumbag, and he deserves all the bad press he can get, when he least expects it, it will come back to him in spades. I just hope him and his, choke on the things they got with my hard earned money, thieving piece of shit that he is.

This make me wanna puke...again. How in the hell can those robots over there be associated with the scrubs in charge? The WG apologist suck just as bad as the guy who ripped off suitekids.
After all, no ham-wristed louts complained when all watches were 34mm - no cries of "looks like a little girl's watch on my wrist!" Like King Canute on the beach, that's where I draw the line - come what may.

Well Jaws put a sticky up telling everyone not to use gifting via paypal. That was it. Whether they banned the guy or not, who really cares anymore. He should have been arrested.

Did you ever filed a Police complaint in the area he lives?

My understanding is yes, but you also have to file with your local police

Why should I be surprised at the actions of the culprit and his willing minions at WG? The people running things there have the morals of a snake. A bloated, drunken, evil, vindictive snake.
I hope all invovled get their heads handed to them. One thing that I expected ran true to form, WG has become so corrupt that they believe they have to rally around this guy to defend the site's reputation. What a bunch of morally corrupt cowards. What more could you really expect though? They are afraid to give banned members even a hint of a chance to tell their side of the story. They sure as hell are going to hide the fact that one of their inner circle is a thief and a liar.
Has there been any resolution at this point? Couldn't both the USPS inspectors and the FBI be informed of this? Since the transaction was enetered into and carried out over the internet, isn't there a chance for wire fraud charges and use of the postal service in furtherance of a criminal act is applicable too, right?
I cannot believe how bad things have gotten and what amazes me even more is that the Land of the Geeks still exists after all the shit they have pulled.

That dude Cannon still a member in WG's, even know he's a thief/scammer never was banned.


Status quo, tons of fun Pete (Cannon) Conlon is still at WG as a mod, I can't post there without it being removed regarding any mention of his thieving ways, the POS never did make it right. WG has been and still is harboring a fatass liar, cheat and a thief.

Well, at least two others that fit that description are now gone. This post will remain up until this is made right. Might be worthwhile to bump it again at WUS too.

If in fact things were as he says (Cannon) he would have taken the watch back. But because the watch is questionable, to say the least, he must have realized that he would never be able to resell it through the regular channels.
Is there a legal recourse available here?

Regardless, he should have refunded the money.
That in itself is enough to question the guy's character (not to mention being a mod at a questionable site).

No reason to not refund the money to the poor guy!!! I have bought and sold on ebay for over 10 years and have over 1000 positive feedbacks with a 100% positive feedback....and if I ever have a problem with a buyer...I refund immediately and don't even ask for the item back. From what I saw of the watch in question....how did he not know....???? I mean....!!!! And why is he still a mod???? I don't care what site he's on...that should not be tollerated!!!

So watchgeeks.net died; where did the Cannon aka Kayfaber aka Pete Conlon go to?

Whilst looking for the above-mentioned site, I ran across watchfreeks.com, a site that literally made my eyes hurt.
Who knows anymore. He changed IDs like people change underwear. I agree about watchfreeks. Painful to look through and part of verticalscope which was hacked a year or so ago along with all verticalscope forums.
