For your attention!
I recently posted my bike for sale. A buyer with a overseas number contacted me thru whatsapp offering to buy my bike.
An enquiry from an overseas number set my alarm bells ringing and i smelled a rat. But i decided to play along and see where this goes.
We reached on a price and i asked for COD. But buyer requested for a bank transfer. And mentioned that he will send an agent to collect the bike. My alarms bells started to ring again.
A day later he sent an email with the Bank statement on the agreeded payment.(mail went to spam). You are getting the drift ya...lol
But there was another catch. He added SGD400 to the total sum. And for the bank (some shitty fake bank.Royal bank) to release the funds i need to transfer the 400 back to the bank. With a long explanation on security and stuff.... blah blah blah...
So to cut a long story short.... my dear singaporeans pls be very alert and vigilant in your dealings with dodgy characters. If you smell a rat...trust your instincts.
I have attached some screen shots for your viewing.
Aiya. A pity i cant attach attachement.
Feel free to send me a PM for the screenshots.
