Seller went missing after I requested for a refund for my PS5 purchase

Online Purchase Scam
I saw a ps5 selling on shopee and i contacted the person through whatsapp. The price was not even considered low, it was just $30-40 cheaper than retail price. It has all these info on a website, Instagram etc. so I thought it was quite legit. But when I transferred a $700 bank transfer to their uob bank account, they told me i have to pay for the insurance, vat, gst fee at a separate transfer of $320 and $410.

They again asked for $510 shipping delivery insurance which all will be refunded after package is received. as the amount is too high, i did not comply and asked for a full refund which in the end no reply from the seller.
