Here's another example of someone who wanted to scam me with a slightly different tactic. This 'girl' approached me on shopee and asked about my products. 'She' gave me her whatsapp number and then asked me to dm her. I agree although I thought it was weird for her to want to do her transactions using a much safer platform but still proceeded to contact her. She then agreed to buy my product and proceeded to ask me for my bank acc details, and my email address. I was a bit peeved to as why she needed my email address so I have my my secondary gmail. Turns out my gut feeling was right and the person wanted to scam me. There were many things wrong with the transaction but the main thing is, why would she had transferred money through Credit Europe Bank, under the name of xxxx, but then asked for the refund to be delivered to xxxx through Maybank? It's a shitty scam.

This situation is happening tome right now. He/she wants me to send the item first before the money will be transferred to my account which is odd. The bank was royal bank in gmail [email protected]

This happened to me already in the past and they want the items first but the Bank name is ING. This is so weird.

Unfortunately, it is likely that your item is gone, but you could try contacting the courier to see if it is possible to stop the shipment.

Also report the crime to your local police.

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.
