Trying to buy a Midea fridge which cost lesser than the market rate by about $100 on Shopee.. Was trying hard to really check out the detail they provided, cos they actually scan their delivery guy ic (front n back) to me claimed is it safe and a warehouse address in sg... Guess I needed the fridge fast which they claimed can be same day delivery, i fell for it... After the transferred of $$$, they mentioned in order to clear the customs, will need another $200 n this will be return after the delivery. While I didn't fall prey to the scam further, I thought it was careless of me to allow the conversation to be taken out of Shopee app. I should have stopped the communication straight away.
Please take note if a seller insists on conversing outside the shopping app or demand instant transfer payment n no cash on delivery, just end the deal. Found out that the seller is since "ban" in Shopee.
