Brent Police appeal for information to trace rare Swatch watch

Seller was duped into handing over limited timepiece on Ebay

Three men have been bailed after an Ebay seller was duped into posting a watch to a buyer after receiving a fake email that payment had been made.

The men were held at an address in Bowrons Avenue, Wembley, after the German seller contacted the police after realising they may have been scammed.

Officers from Wembley Central Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) attended the address of the ‘buyer’ and arrested three men for false representation.

The trio, who are Romanian nationals, been bailed to return to a police station next month.
