My wife just got into similar problem with an online sales.
The buyer was threatening her to refund $500 for a transfer that he made for $517. The price agreed was only $17. But he said the oversea bank cannot transfer $17. Must be $517. He said that his was scotia bank europe. He told my wife that she needs to refund the $500 first then only the $517 will go through.
My wife didn't budge and he started threatening my wife about her going to jail etc....

Just block the scammer and ignore all contact.

Please post all the email addresses, phone numbers that he is using for other victims to find.

Please do not tell scammers that they are listed here - it will take them seconds to change their fake details and their new details will not be listed for any future victims to find.

Thanks for this thread! :=)

You guys saved my money. Just a while ago I received the same format of email when I tried to sell an item in Mudah.my. My concern is how does Mudah.my can block all these scammers from getting victims.

Again thanks guys and always be vigilant.

They are both scam addresses.

Both are free email addresses, which a legitimate bank would never use.

Please do not tell scammers that they are listed here - it will take them seconds to change their fake details and their new details will not be listed for any future victims to find.

So,I have make an ad on mudah.my
I sold for rm1700
Then a man came and WhatsApp me,after the procedure

He said I need to pay rm400
And he also said after I pay half I get the money.

So, I bank in rm200 to his agent
Then, he said the bank cannot transfer the money bcs of insufficient fund
At that time,I felt weird..it was a Singaporean (David Yukon)don't know if it's a true name,and he sent me using this email [email protected]
Is this a true Scotia Bank email....and what should I do now?

It's a scam. Legitimate banks don't use Gmail email addresses and they don't ask recipients of transfers to make a payment to enable them to receive their funds.

Please do not tell scammers that they are listed here - it will take them seconds to change their fake details and their new details will not be listed for any future victims to find.
