Online Purchase Scam
IPhone XS MAX 256GB ADVERTISED at a good price at GUMTREE but did not use the Gumtree platform for payment. communicated via whatsapp and Instead wanted half price up front and the rest at delivery. However after first payment changed her mind and wanted the entire sum before delivery. At this point I realized I'd been scammed and did not send any more money. Seller sent me hER (supposed) NRIC as well to "authenticate" hER identity.After that gave the a lot of story and didn't deliver the Phone.

I have lost SGD700.
