    Thanks Ron
    I stated in another post, the package was razor cut, the watch stolen, and box retaped w/ clear shipping tape ,after shipment, because one of the ups labels is cut thru...watch was a 1930 Ball/Hamilton 999 #B639591,in gold fancy stirrup bow case....ebay # 5072322621...I wish the pics of the case were still on the listing as that was a huge reason for buying this watch
    Thanks everyone

    Greg have you contacted UPS about this? If it was a razor cut on the box it seems that someone there did the deed and they have cameras montoring such things.

    This watch is currently up for sale on an online auction site.


    eBay's "Report a Problem" page states "Report a fraudulent listing: At the bottom of every listing you will find a link saying "Report this item". That takes you to a form you need to fill in to tell us why you are reporting. This includes counterfeit or stolen items, or other suspected fraud" However, I can't find that link at the bottom of the listing. Does anybody know how to follow up with eBay?

    Just clicked on the "Report Item" link and started to go through the procedure.
    When I got to the drop down box about the item being stolen property, a warning comes up alongside the box stating:
    Reports of stolen property on eBay need to come from a law enforcement official. This reporting reason is for law enforcement and eBay PROACT members.
    Me thinks that Greg needs to be contacted to follow this up.

    Regards

    I have removed the auction link from this post as live auction links are no permitted on this site. No matter how good the reason for adding them might be.

    Kent - GREAT job and I've emailed Greg your message, but its been 7 years since I've written him and hopefully that email is still active. If anyone has a more current contact for Greg I hope they bring this to his attention.

    Peter - I hope you retained a copy of the item link that Kent posted.
