Online Purchase Scam
Phone ADVERTISED at a good price at lazada but did not use the lazada platform for payment. communicated via whatsapp and Instead wanted half price up front and the rest at delivery. However after first payment changed his 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 his (supposed) NRIC as well to "authenticate" his identity.
