Buyer/Seller BEWARE Scenarios

Post by leecalkin on Sat Sep 24, 2016 10:49 am

He will message you saying he's interested in your item for sale. He will say he will take bus to Berjaya Times Square. And when comes the appointed time and date he may say that he took the wrong bus bought by his sister and ended in another bus station and the run around. He will also claim he forgotten his ATM card and does not have enough cash and a load of bull. This chap really gives A bad name to Singaporean. SO WATCH OUT FOR HIS MODUS OPERANDI.

Beware of this guy who appeared as a Singaporean but also carried the following mobile phone numbers:

65-8184 6660

65-8232 0188

017-7116717

65-85081818


He communicated me first on
9-4-2126
then 7-6-2016
again 17-6-2016

Using all the above number.  Very likely is the same Monkey.

I am keeping all his chat on my mobile, just in case anyone doubting me.

After reading the postings above, I went and checked my whatsapp and I want to add  that I also have one similar case like this, thru the no+65 81846660.  

Many months back I was letting go my used amp and he msg me, similar story, he is coming to KL to buy somone else speakers and would like to have my amp as well. He will leave from BTS and asked me to pack my item and meet him there for Cod. Very pleasant discussion as everything going on decently, he asked me to show him the item photos and the video proving it is working.  However on the day ( Sunday morning) to transact , he suddenly said he still in sgp and missed the bus to kl due to he was drunk last night. After knowing his problem , I called off the discussion immediately.

It happened to me years ago. It was a singaporean buyer.

I lug a heavy 30kg Yaqin KT 88 int amp and ended up waiting 30 minutes at Times square for nothing.

he would give all kinds of excuse to lure me to Time Square and even confirmed at Midnight 12am that he boarded the coach.

Well I was not alone, another guy with a DSLR also waiting for him with another soup story by the same buyer.

I was getting suspicious as how would he carry that heavy amp back to Singapore and he was well prepared with answers !!

In the past, I notice successful deal with Singaporean is via courier offices at JB.

Ask for a deposit if buyers requested to meet up other than your place.

Dear members,
Pinning down a might be scammer is every members responsibility,we cant always rely on the Moderators,they're normal people like us,they have their own job .We just need to flagged for awareness when something doesnt seems right,then hightlight to the Moderators to investigate for the benefits of all to make this hifi4sale forum a clean and safe forum.
After my 1st flagged,I have been coordinating closely with the Moderators on this scammer since December 2016.
Moderators have come into attention that this suspicious scammer that i flagged was a newly registered user with different locations(Indonesia,Singapore. ..etc)/
posting undervalued selling price/no value contacts number/updating sells to sold immediately after being flagged as scammer/keep changing profile pics(latest was a chinese guy photo)which might be extracted from Internet/ re-registering new username once posting has been flagged suspicious for scam ..etc.
In order to retaliate,scammer extracted most' not all of my past sales posting dated as far as 2014 to named and shame me as scammer.
I have bought/sold many items in hifi4sale and most of my buyers who came to collect personally at my place(Singapore)was welcome with lunch or dinner follow by sharings of audio,hifi experiences. ..we have since become good friends...thats the spirit in this hobby.If I am a scammer,I would have been flagged down many years ago..
It is not friendly to post my buyers username or contacts here,I have already sent the full list of buyers username/contacts for verification to the Moderators.I have also forwarded an uncomfortable PM which this scammer has sent me:' Dont try to save others'...what does this scammer means? Is he telling me that if by trying to save others,I will get myself into trouble?
No way! We dont bow down to Saturn.
We bow to our God !
Lastly,I exposed this might be scammer with good intentions in mind,the rest will be follow up by Moderators.
Cheers!

Sifus,

When I was clearing my whatsApp today, I have noticed that this clown put up a selfie in his profile. I have no idea if this was him. Should I post his photo in this group? Does anyone notice him?
