Online Purchase Scam
Went online to purchase a new TV. Found an advertisement on Craigslist (WhatsApp number supplied). Contacted the seller and was advised if payment was made today it could be delivered in 2 hours. I asked for it to be c.O.D but seller was insistent that to get the deal it needed to be bank transfer. Transfer made $998.00, deal done... delivery on its way. However, 10 mins before it was supposed to arrive I was told my item was held up at customs and needed to pay extra $480.00 for it to be released and I would receive the $480 in cash on delivery. When I started asking for proof it was obvious I had been scammed....
