Online Purchase Scam
the scammer started to advertise their cheap tv product in shopee with a footnote saying for serious buyers to watsapp @ +65 8250 7548. they asked to transfer the payment to them outside of shopee account which i didn't agree. They then started to ask me for code that was sent to my mobile. it was from lazada. with this message "XXXXX is your OTP for your lazada seller account registration. it will expired in 5 mins. do not share under any circumstances! [lazada]".

the scammer tried to use my mobile to set up seller account in lazada so that they can scam others when they advertise for cheap tv and asking interested buyers to transfer them the money outside of the online shopping site. When the buyer contact the online shopping site, the stolen phone number will be used to track and the victim will become the scammer.
