164. how does that strike you, amico?

Full strike Sir, just another Temporary Autonomous Zeitgeist where things happen and often fail: do not expect anything serious, true, brilliant, constructive, etc. This is abortive and pathetic; chaotic and unplanified. As the name suggests, this is meant to lead nowhere but will compile html tags, word verification and rauchen, lots of rauchen.

The "replica watches" advertised in numerous spam emails are imitations of luxury brand watches manufactured and sold contrary to international trademark laws. Some people may take buying and wearing a fake Rolex as some kind of a joke. Maybe they would not buy the real thing anyway and feel that no one is being harmed if they purchase the fake watch. They are underestimating the risks they are taking. See an example of a replica watch spam below.

When you place an order online from a store you have not dealt with before, you usually hope they are honest people. Yet anyone buying a fake Rolex (or similar product) by definition deals with a criminal. How do you know you are not going to get cheated? In a way, it would be safer to buy a fake watch from a stranger on a street corner, because then you can actually look at the watch and have a good chance he'll give it you when you give him cash. When you buy online, they guy who takes your credit card number and address is thousands of kilometres away and you have no idea what he is going to send you, if he sends anything at all.

The major business risk of counterfeit goods makers is being pursued by the police, by customs agents and by the trademark owners. To minimize that risk they will leave no leads to follow. They won't give a valid postal address. The website they set up will be registered using a fake postal address and will disappear again within a few weeks.

So what are you going to do when after one month your credit card has been charged but there is no watch? Or what if one watch has arrived but you have been billed for three? What are you going to do if your credit card starts getting billed for other items after you placed this order? These are things you should consider before you go for that "replica watch" advertised in spam. Later it may be too late.
