Online Purchase Scam
They are listed as a seller on Lazada. They were offering PS5 at a cheap price. After i made the payment on Lazada the seller asked for additional $200 as insurance and vat. they said the money will be refunded post delivery. I checked with Lazada customer care and they said not to make any payment outside the platform.

the dealer then contacted me personally on Whatsapp and asked to buy it directly from their website . the seller asked to pay 50% upfront and remaining payment on delivery , which looked very shady from their side. the website has no reviews . glad i stopped before making any payment else that money would have gone in a gutter
