BEWARE of SCAMS *real story based on my own experience*

Thursday, May 21, 2015

I never thought that this will ever happen to me, I can't believe it!


This is the first time I was threaten by someone. The whole plan was a scam actually and I think this is a serious case, it might happen to you or anyone else. Thus, I decide to blog about it so you will be aware especially for those who are doing e-commerce / online selling. 

p/s: Don't worry, I'm safe.
p/p/s: This is a real story based on my own experience.

So, this is how the story begin. I want to sell my Nikon D90 DSLR and thus I posted the above picture and information on a few website and forum such as free trade zone, lelong, mudah.my and others. When I got an email notification from mudah.my informing me that my post has been published, I received a whatsapp message from a weird number immediately who is asking about my camera, Nikon D90.

+234 903 769 6297 (number from Nigeria)
That's the number. I feel skeptical but I still continue texting with her.

I guess is a lady (or maybe nope) who is from US.
After I told her the availability of my camera, she told me that she's interested to buy it. Without any hesitation, she even offer a price for the shipping cost from Malaysia to US via Pos Laju service.

I told her that I have to check the postage fee first because I didn't post any parcel to US before, and she told me NO NEED to check because this is not her first time buying items from Malaysia. She even sent a few pictures to prove to me that she bought items from Malaysia previously and received via Pos Laju.

Scroll down slowly for the full conversation between me and her.





These are all the pictures she sent to me, to prove that she bought the items (camera) from Malaysia previously.


She told me to include a RM250 to the total cost, or may add RM300 which is for me to buy a box to place the camera + accessories into it. RM50 for a box??!!!?? 
I can just get a recycle box from the cleaning aunty in my office. FOC!

After that, she were asking what's the bank that I'm using? Maybank or CIMB? 
Wah!!!! So terror... she even know the banks in Malaysia.

She were rushing to make payment after requested my banking details (name and account number), and email address. And urged me to send the parcel to her first thing on next morning.



She told me that she will forward my banking details to her bank, and her bank will send a confirmation email to me when the payment has been made. While waiting for the transaction to be done, she telling me that she's buying this camera for her dad. A PRESENT FOR HER DAD. *you will know why I need to highlight and bold the sentence later*

Few minutes later, I received an email from the "bank" named CREDIT EUROPE BANK. There's information of my name, total amount paid by the buyer, bank account and number (which I provided earlier). It stated that the money is ready to be transfered into my Maybank account. But the weird information written in the email is I MUST SHIP the item immediately and reply the bank with a scanned copy of the shipment receipt, to enable them to credited the money into my account. Failure who do so will result in Legal Action.

That's weird right? If I have post my camera, and reply the "bank" with a scanned copy of shipment receipt and yet the "bank" don't wanna credit the money into my bank. What will happen? My camera will be gone *forever* and I won't receive a single cent. 

Here's the email I received from the "bank" - CREDIT EUROPE BANK.


After I read the email, I re-confirm with the lady again that the money will be credited only IF I email the scanned shipment receipt to the bank? And she started being rude to me by saying "what the hell.....". I bet her English is not that good after all because she doesn't seems to understand my question and keep asking what do I mean.

So, to make my life easier, I told her that I will send the parcel to her tomorrow morning. Once again, she teach me how to pack the camera into the box. -.-""" swt.  

Next morning, she started spamming my whatsapp with tons of messages and being rude again. Warned me that I will die, or go to jail because I didn't send the parcel to her yet the money has been deducted from her account.










She didn't contact me at all after her last message and I didn't even bother to reply or continue to chat with her. The reason I told her that I posted the parcel because I wanna see how would she act after I told her that the money is not credited to my account. 

The story about this lady has come to the end for now but the scam doesn't stop at here! I received a message from this guy name Kelvin Chong <kelvinchong065@gmail.com>. He says that he's currently based in UK with family, and wanna buy the camera as a birthday gift for his grandson who is currently working in UAE. 



There's another email after Kelvin Chong, it is from a guy name Azrul Ahmad <azrulahmaad1@gmail.com>. He sms and request me to send an email to him. Below is our conversation. You will see the similarity in both email of Kelvin and Azrul.




These are the sms(s) I received. For the B, I know is from the same group maybe, thus I reply a message directly (without emailing as per his request). Yet, there's no reply after that. 

Check out their phone number, it is a Malaysia number. Scary right?? These people will try their best to make you fully trust that this is from a real and sincere buyer from the same country (Malaysia).

Yet there's another lady whatsapp me today which has the same country code from the first lady who approached me. +234 (Nigeria)

So, ya.. that's all for the long story. If you have read through all the messages and email, there are so many similarity in this scam action. Firstly, they will tell you that they wanna buy it as a gift (to someone). Secondly, require your details (name, bank account number and name). Thirdly, they will mention the goods is urgently needed and need to post it ASAP! They will keep rushing you, so you won't have extra time to think about it. 

All the above is not happen in a day. It is actually a whole process planned by them (I believe so) because these people contacted me after one and another.

The first lady who approached me by telling me that the bank had deducted her money from her account is a scam as well, my bf found an article which telling the same incident. I google and found out that many people got hooked on this scam. I visited Credit Europe Bank and below is the message from them on the false e-mails that is circulating around the world now. They NEVER provide any service on exchange of goods, does not provide guarantees or any operations concerning online payments. 


So, we have to really be alert at all times.
It would be great if we do Cash On Delivery (COD) or to sell the products on a secure platform such as lelong or ebay. I wouldn't suggest my friend to post any "for sale" ad on mudah.my because this site easily attract all the scam.

Finally! Such a long post!!!
I take time to screen shot all the messages, emails and google for more info so that my friends will be alert on this matter and not to be the next victim.  Take care. :)

  1. I also have experienced like yours, selling camera in mudah.com or lelong (couldn't remember which one) but not to the extent like your case. Many scams too, like at first they show their interest but I could feel it's actually scam so at the end, I decided delete the post and keeping the camera to myself. I also prefer COD nowadays.

    The scammer message on whatsapp from prefix number +234. He want to buy old money and offer me high price. The price aroud RM500K it is not logic. He give me instruction to pay through western union. i pay RM1000, then he will request another pay again & again..

    beware from this scammer is very intelligent & professional.
    He will angry if we stop send money to them !
    He will blackmail if we refuse to follow their instruction as well.

    so my advices just ignore all number from +234 & dont make any connection with them...you are getting scam !

    I think i might have been scammed too. It says that he/she's in canada for a training, and would like to buy it for the daughter in Ampang. I gave her my account number for the transaction, and i received a 2500myr payment email, and then received another emaip with 50myr. the email from the bank saying money will be credited once they received the postage etc.. And she even provide me a local address and phone number for the postage.. Is this considered as scam too? And what should i do? Do i just ignore and block the email?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Nadia,
      I believe it is a scam too. Because, it stated that money will only credited to you after the postage which doesn't sounds logic. Normally, you gotta pay first and make sure you receive the money, then only you post it.

      Hope all good with ya. :)

  30. Just nearly gt scam by the same person pretending to be a woman from US. Once i receive the email of her confirmed payment. Immediately i fired back at her, accusing and exposing her plan to scam me. It feels so damn awesome to sarcastically scold her for her intention to cheat my money. Haha~~ however, i gt threathened by her saying that she will hire hitman and kill me the next morning. She even use FBI and I challenged her saying that I will be glad to meet with FBI to tell them about her. Eventually she just keep saying that I will be kill soon with bunch of laughs. Then she removed the pic in whatsapp and deleted the fb account right after that. Ntg feels great outsmarting these bunch of suckers, exposing their crime. Making them feel in despair and the best part is, pissed the f**k out of them. Hahhaha!!!

  39. Thank you so much for posting this! I've had SUCH similar experiences lately, after posting an ad on Mudah. Wow, so desperate to get a camera that you try and find one from all across the world? Not suspicious at all, lol. I got really pissed off and just straight out told them to go to hell the moment they started with their typical "Is your item still available for sale?". They use the exact same tactics over and over. I also got emails from people telling me they want to buy my item for their family/friend whatever. These are all telltale signs of a scammer. Everyone should know this and be cautious.

  42. It's the same thing what I have been experiencing! Am not sure if the email from the bank is real, the weird part was the money can only be credited once I proceed with the items' shipment. This time I specifically said only local bank transactions and local shipping, strictly no international trades and yet still people from Canada. Nigeria, UK etc emailed me and the cycle just never stops :/ p/s they tend to become rude when you're just double-confirming, and the most annoying thing is when they get mad and assume that you don't trust them (giving more reasons NOT to trust them ugh!!!)

  48. Hi Yvonne,

    What a great story you have there. I was also experiencing a lot of these scam whatsapp and email since many years ago as I always sell my camera gear through mudah.my.

    Last night I even had a surprising new experience just to share with you and others.

    At first after a few whatsapp from number +234xxx asking if my items is available and I just ignore them, then suddenly I receive this whatsapp from local Malaysia number +601117685108 with the profile photo is the logo of mudah.my. The content goes like this:

    "Dear Chai,

    We strongly recommend you to deal with only our recommended buyers on mudah.my

    You can contact this numbers, they are buyer from England who are well know and are very popular and rich,
    they are in search of a Nikon camera. Contact any of there number to deal with them

    Whatapp:

    +2349057001563

    ‪+2347066142800‬

    +2348101130776

    negotiate with them, offer them good prices,
    they are rich foreigners

    You are safe to sell with only the registered foreigners on Mudah.my"

    At first I thought that how nice mudah is showing up to safeguard seller like me to prevent getting scam by providing us the registered Nigerian number from England who is rich. Then I try contacted the first number with 1563. She ask for my camera price and I put higher a bit at RM4000 but she direct offer to bank in RM5000 to me. Sounds like kena jackpot? Hahaha. Then I screen shot this conversation to the mudah number just now asking if this number he provided is really safe.

    Below are the conversation details:

    [5/8, 23:01] ‪+60 11-1768 5108‬: Have you now make a deal with her already ?
    [5/8, 23:02] ‪+60 11-1768 5108‬: She is given you rm5000? T
    [5/8, 23:02] ‪+60 11-1768 5108‬: That's great
    [5/8, 23:03] Chai Tzong Shiun: Not yet. I don't think a normal buyer will direct buy without asking much about the camera first before deal
    [5/8, 23:03] ‪+60 11-1768 5108‬: You will gain more money like that
    [5/8, 23:04] ‪+60 11-1768 5108‬: Maybe she trust because it's direct from Mudah
    [5/8, 23:04] Chai Tzong Shiun: And it's funny someone offer more money than the selling price
    [5/8, 23:04] ‪+60 11-1768 5108‬: Many of the foreigner don't have much discussion they believe on trust
    [5/8, 23:04] ‪+60 11-1768 5108‬: Hope the camera as no fault ?
    [5/8, 23:04] ‪+60 11-1768 5108‬: If has any fault kindly inform her
    [5/8, 23:05] ‪+60 11-1768 5108‬: Not as you may think
    [5/8, 23:05] Chai Tzong Shiun: The camera has no fault but it's kind of strange for her to trust me in just less than one minute without much talk yet
    [5/8, 23:07] ‪+60 11-1768 5108‬: Ooh maybe she felt she is with the right seller
    [5/8, 23:08] Chai Tzong Shiun: By the way, how do I know u are really from mudah.my?
    [5/8, 23:09] Chai Tzong Shiun: Do u have any proof to show me? I have msg u in your official Facebook. Did u receive my msg there?
    [5/9, 01:51] ‪+60 11-1768 5108‬: I'm not the one in charge of the Facebook
    [5/9, 01:51] ‪+60 11-1768 5108‬: My name is saravanan
    [5/9, 01:51] ‪+60 11-1768 5108‬: This my identity card
    [5/9, 01:52] ‪+60 11-1768 5108‬: If anything can make a report
    [5/9, 01:52] ‪+60 11-1768 5108‬: And Mudah.mh will be responsible for any loss or lost

    2. Hi Chai,

      WOW!!! They slowly realize that the 1st trick isn't working and now they are trying with another method. Malaysian might easily trust it because of the local contact number and the logo. I hope everyone can be smart.

      Thanks for sharing it here. Really appreciate it. :)

  49. Woww... am surprise to see soo many scam.

    Just got one scam, actualy 2 different european guys whatsapp me to buy my handphone. What a lucky day i thought initially, just after few hours displaying my ads in mudah.

    I was being very honest seller giving all the pics at every stage of testing & packing, after all at a good price. But luckily, I made last check on email address.. it ends with accountant.com ? what the hell! when is it that the uses stupid website, it should be crediteuropebank.com etc..

    So dear online sellers.. beware

  50. Reading this and yeah same thing happen to me today. First time kena scam teruk sangat. sampai habis duit rm1000 macam tu je. pattern scammer sama macam yg ni punya cerita. Nama lelaki tu dia cakap Husin Ali, memula mesej saya nak beli anak kucing yg saya jual dekat mudah.my, dia mesej suruh email dkt dia untuk bincang psl pembelian. Lepastu saya trus email, dia cakap NAK BELI UNTUK HADIAHKAN DEKAT ANAK LELAKI DIA DI MALAYSIA sbb dia duduk di US. saya jual anak kucing tu rm400, lepastu dia kata okay je dia boleh bayar. Esoknya dia email dekat saya dia dh buat payment RM1500. pelik sebab lebih dripada jumlah asal. Husin Ali bagitahu saya RM1500 tu sebab 500 untuk kucing, dan 1000 tu cas untuk courier agent yg akan dtg pickup dari rumah saya. Dia kata dia ada email dkt saya confirmation bank dan suruh saya check spam dekat email. Saya buka dan ada email dripada Wells Fargo bank. dlm email tu suruh saya bank in dekat dia RM500 sbb untuk verification daripada bank untuk lepaskan duit rm1500 dekat saya. saya macam blur tapi tak fhm saya bank in jelah 500 dkt bank yg dia suruh tu. lepas tu, dah bank in 500, tetiba dapat email lagi suruh bank in lagi 500 sbb nak complete kan 1000 untuk cas courier agent tu. saya ingatkan betul, jadi saya pun bank in lagi. Nampak pelik kan, duit dripda husin ali saya tak dpt lagi, tapi saya kena bayar rm1000 dekat bank dia. Dari situ saya mula rasa pelik, saya tanya kawan, diorang confirm ni scammer. Sedih sangat hilang duit 1000 dlm masa satu hari macam tu je. Saya ni student tgh desperate nak guna duit untuk bayar yuran kolej. Please korang kalau ada pembeli dari luar negara thru mudah.my, please jgn layan. ITU SCAM. LANSUNG TAK MEMUDAHKAN HIDUP KORANG!!

    3. saya kena sama macam awak . bezanya saya belum buat pembayaran pada dia , saya jadi tak yakin sebab dia terlalu mendesak saya untuk bayar balance dalam masa kurang 24jam. bila saya kata saya tak ada duit, dia mintak saya pinjam dari kawan kawan. bila saya buat tak tahu chat dia , dia kata saya akan mendapat karma dari Allah , then ugut saya kata urusan akaun transfer tu dipantau oleh FBI dan berkata saya akan berurusan dengan FBI.

  53. Thanks for this blog. A few of +234 nos. tried to scam me today when I posted my piano for sale at mudah. Luckily I could escape from them. Then I realized this scam is so common in Malaysia.

    Quite soon after I posted it at mudah, someone with 234 no. WhatsApp me. He said he is in Sg n asked for last price. He was ok with 9k. I felt suspicious cos he didn't need to inspect n test it. When he answered it was for church, I thought it was quite logical that he didn't need to inspect do much.

    Then I provided him my bank details n email. He immediately "banked in" to me n emailed me. The email was from Bank of England n he banked in 15k to me. At first I was excited cos he paid more than 9k but I could sense sth wasn't right. He then repeated urged me to bank in 1k into his bank. Of cos I asked what for? He said for verification fee as stated in the bank email. He wanted me to trust the email. I told him that I won't transfer money to him before I received his. Hey, I'm the seller why should I pay the customer?

    After I didn't reply him, he said he'll report to FBI. Funny right? A culprit reporting to FBI. Of cos, he wanted to threaten me.

    After that, I received several other scams from 234 code today as well.

  57. I was selling my car online but I always receive local calls from buyers saying that they want to buy the car immediately because they are from other states like kedah or ipoh. Mind you these are our real local people because they can speak our language and I've met them before at the bus stop. They said they came down by bus to collect car but got scammed. End up they are disappointed and scan through the website again to see if they can drive a car back home. They want to have a look at the car today and tomorrow morning will meet at bank and do bankers cheque. Sounds suspicious because they carry bags and I worry inside those bags are weapons.

  59. I was being scammed on today! Terrible angry myself never google you guys post before I do. I posted to sell a bag at mudah as well. received a women name aishat bintii said want to buy a bag for her family urgently and she paid through Smile Bank. However smile bank need to get the shipment tracking no before can transfer the money to my account. This is my first time selling things online, and I never think too much send the parcel. The bag not cost much about rm80,and i send the shipment tracking to the smile bank, it return me that our minimum transaction is RM500, our client will send you total rm500 and you need to refund to her rm420 bank in to another account. the women keep on notify me that the bank send the email to me.Although I wondering and hesitate a while, at last don't know why I choose to trust the bank and transfer money to the account. After that I receive another email from Smile bank again said that they overcharged me so i still need to refund another rm2000.. At this point of time, I know I being conned.I 'm so angry and text the person keep asking her, but she very rude to me and ask me to do refund faster. Until now she still keep spamming, but I choose not to bother and plan to lodge report to increase awareness

  63. Nearly got scammed by another conmen using nigerian number (+234 708 963 6606) yesterday. Apparently he was interested to buy my items advertised on mudah.my.
    An email came with a the transfer number, account numbers (his and mine), our different banks and of course the amount.
    The issue here is the amount, wh will be MORE then agreed upon. The extra amount, say RM300 for example is the pick up agent's fees which I have to bank in 1st before the total amount will be released.
    The catch is to NEVER bank in the money because the total amount (or any amount) will never be banked into your account.
    The so called confirmation email from the bank is actually created and edited by the conmen himself with bank logos, bank manager's photo and signature etc etc.
    Please watch out for this account no. wh u have to bank in the supposedly 'extra' money for the pick up agent.
    Name: Quyyum Bin Mohd Saad
    Bank: CIMB, Account no.: 76166 10522
    Please take note that these conmen love to use words like 'NOW', 'IMMEDIATELY', 'TODAY'. Send me the photos of the item NOW!! Check your email IMMEDIATELY!! Bank in the pick up agent fees by TODAY!! You can take down your ad NOW or by TODAY because I will transfer the money to you NOW!!
    Just be careful if you see these key words. They are there to sound like they (the conmen) are really into your item, to make you let ur guards down and to make you feel rushed and to throw you off balance because somebody is URGENTLY RUSHING u, thus you dun bother to check thoroughly.
    Before you know it, you r conned.
    Anyway, my story sharing ends here. Be safe everyone.

    1. Also, be very very very CAREFUL when a buyer says this to u (seller) "I trust you, you trust me too right?" If a buyer asks u this, just end the conversation. Trust me, there wont a business transaction happening.
      Just imagine if u are the buyer with the money ready to pay the seller, y would u even NEED the seller to trust u in the 1st place? Ur leverage is ur money, and that is that...no need to even mention trust at all.
      Just bank in the money into his/her (SELLER) account and wait for the item to arrive.
      It is the SELLER that needs the BUYER to trust them in case the item is faulty or the item is not sent, rather then the other way around.
      When the buyer ask seller to trust them.....just end the conversation. Nothing will come out of it. Period.

  64. Thanks for sharing. I have received similar scam enquiries but having read and heard about similar scams, I just told them that I only do COD and do local transactions. It is good to read about an experience where you went through with the conversation, although you didn't send the parcel (yay! So glad you didn't get scammed). Thanks to all the commenters too... I didn't know they are now using local names and phone numbers to try to scam you! I just posted a whole bunch of items on Mudah and now I am getting a flood of similar scam enquiries again! That's why I googled just to see if others have similar experiences :)

    I had similar encounter with this +234 8110718012 - claiming to be an international investor staying in brunei and a buying for son who is schooling in malaysia. the pic in whatsapp is a lady (which i doubt is a real person) but when called a nigerian guys spoke. he whatsapp that he has done this before and the shipping agent will act on their behalf.

    I had doubt because he kept asking for my bank details and not bothered to verify the product I was selling. I googled 'mudah.com spam & also buying n selling online scam, and came across all type of stories.

      Sorry to hear about that. :( If you don't give them any password or pin, then should be safe enough. If you have given the bank account, is okay, they can't do anything. Better don't give them your house address, is quite dangerous though. Contact number is still okay.

  68. Hi Yvonne, thank you for sharing your story. I think I am being scammed now. I posted ad for my car on mudah this morning and I received text message asking me to send details of the car to his father email. The so called father replied my email and claimed that he is a Petronas Oil Rig Engineer and is currently offshore and will buy my car (without negotiating the price or checking the condition, and satisfied with photos only) for his son in Philippines. He insisted on paying through paypal (payment through paypal can be irrevocable if buyer made complaint after payment that he didn't received the item even though he actually did received it).I also received SMS from 246 number asking for details of my car. I am desperate to sell my car since I will be moving to oversea in a few weeks so even though my gut says something is wrong, I keep trying to convince myself that this is legit. But after reading through your blog, I guess I should just ignore there spammers and find other legit buyer for cash payment. Thank you very much for sharing and God bless you for your effort to alert the public on this fraud. Have a nice day Yvonne!

  70. Hi Yvonne,

    First of thank you for this. About the same thing happening to me RIGHT NOW, as I'm typing this here.

    Someone by the name Suryakant Whatsapp me and told me to send the item to his son. I was already feeling skeptical by that as I know it'll mostly be a spam if I have to ship it oversea. But here's what convince me, he gave me an address somewhere in Sri Kembangan. So I thought, ok at least its domestic and I told him I agree to sell & send the item to the address.

    He started asking for my bank details and he then spammed my WA telling me he made the payment but since he had minimum limitation he had to transfer RM500 when all he had to pay me is RM15!! (At this point, I was facepalm-ing hard knowing its a spam. Hahahaha)

    So, he said I need to return him RM475. I guess no point and such a waste of time to continue the conversation, I decided to block his number (please know that its a Malaysian number, another point that convinced me). But I know he will maybe call me again later IF he still hasnt give up.

    So thats what happen. Thank you again Yvonne for this. You have helped me and so many people, you have no idea.

    Be skeptical, have doubt, guys!

  75. Interestingly, this thread has been so popular a discussion since your initial posting. I just had (like literally 30 mins ago) received the same whatsapp message from a Nigerian number. Alert mode on defence. But since I am new at Mudah, I thought let's see how it goes. True enough, before I went into the details, I decided to Google up, and your timely article popped up. Thanks for your detailed and crucial chronology of event, I am certain I did the right thing by not entertaining him.

  78. Hi,
    I just get scammed by the same technique. I lost a bug amount of money due to I believed that the Credit Europe Bank really deducted money from her account.Then I warned her not to contact me again, i know she is a scammer,or else i report to police.But what makes me worries is the seller still send email to me asking me to unblock her chart and give her my whatsapps number.

  81. Hi Yvonne,

    wanted to ask you, since you have sent her your personal information (Bank account number), will that bring any disadvantages to you then?

    Cause I just sent them my Paypal information (Name, email, phone number, home address), will there be anything happen?

    Appreciate if you could reply me, thanks :)

    1. Hi Cying,
      They only got my bank account (which require them to transfer the money to me initially) and my name only. I didn't provide phone number nor house address. So far, my case is save. I do not encourage you to give ppl your house add for no reason.

  82. I almost got scammed by all these scanners, thank God I Google it.
    The buyer sent SMS a few hours I posted item on mudah by using local number +60102883034 with content below:
    reply me to my email (okodaptos@gmail.com) about the final price of your electonics item on mudah

    I sent him the email with handset pictures and he replied promptly saying that he is in UK now and would like to purchase the handset for his youngest son in Perak and he willing to pay for shipping with additional fee.

    I requested for address and the address stated in Tanjong Karang with a local name:
    Receiver name: Mohamad Amirul Bin Hazhar
    Address: no78, TAMAN SRI DESA, TANJONG KARANG, SELANGOR, 455600

    I am not too sure how genuine the details is till I received the payment notification with email address easy-settlement@accountant.com that stated payment from Royal Bank of Scotland. Yeah, it's weird! I read through the email again, they requires tracking number with scanned slip then the fund will transfer to my bank account.

    I Google Mudah scam and I came across this blog. I feel thankful! Or else, I got scammed. I replied the email and informed that I would like the payment in COD or local bank transfer, not international bank wire. Awaiting for his reply and see what he gonna respond!

  90. 昨天我的朋友也是有收到這樣的電郵~
    一個叫Lea.Wilson的男人,在shopee網站看見我朋友買“直發膏”然後說要買, 匯款500馬幣。我朋友就收到來自crediteuropeonlineservice@ownplace.com 電郵說明 Lea.Wilson已經匯款500馬幣去我朋友戶口。但是直發膏才55馬幣,他需要我朋友用Western Union匯餘額去他戶口。然後我叫我朋友report去shopee。
    而且晚間收到的是interpol的電郵說,要是不把其餘的餘額匯款給一個叫Lea.Wilson和貨一定要寄出去, 國際警察會抓我朋友去坐牢然後凍結我朋友的銀行戶口。而且國際刑警interool給我朋友24小時吧Pos laju的單號發給他們。他們會採取法律行動是因為我朋友沒有回复任何電郵給Credit Europe Bank的電郵。

    我朋友把一切的資料給我看後, 第一個發現,收款人(我朋友)名字“他們”寫錯了。我就一直懷疑,然後用Google搜索一下,結果顯示蠻多人已經中招過了。然後我讓我朋友不要回复Credit Europe Bank的一切電郵,然後今天去銀行和警察局報案~

    妳們的留言真的幫了我們很多。
    謝謝大家~

  91. I also received an email from "crediteuropeonlineservice@ownplace.com" that about "he" the customer buy "fast hair straightener 906" while this i posted on Shopee website. I feel weird that why "he" wanted to buy a thing cost 55myr and "so called transfered" to me the amount is 500MYR, and asked me to transfer the balance 445MYR back to the "he" 's account by Western Union.

    FYI, It is the same Transaction number with what i searched on google.. "SW18099887672990NL"

    One thing for the first place i sensed that this was a scam email due to "he" wrote my name WRONGLY.

    Now i received another email that will take me to jail if i NOT done the Transaction of the balance within 24 hours!

    tomorrow i will go to make a report at Police station about this and will inform my bank as well.

    Thanks Goodness that Scamwarners helped me lots!!
    Thank you very Much

  101. Hey, you know what? I've just falled for that just now today 14th december. Actually i post my old junk laptop ad Mudah.my then he text me up on whatsapp, but this time that scammer used a Malaysian number. His english quite good and he says that he's from Canada and have a wife at Penang. He's interested to buy my laptop and willing to pay rm100 just for the shipping fee. This time he asked me to ship it to puchong selangor, taman kinrara seksyen 3. Idk where is that but i do know its in Malaysia so i trusted him. He said that when i send the shipping receipt to his bank via email, then only the bank would transacted the money. I do send the shipping receipt of poslaju to his bank. Then the bank asked me to wait 4-6 hours for money confirmation. Then suddenly the bank emailed me and said that they mispelled and then rm1000 deducted from the buyer's account, which means extra rm500 is on me. Then i contact the buyer, the buyer said to me that in order for the bank to let it deposit into my bank, i musr firsr deposit him back rm500 on his cimb bank, but strangely its a chinese owner but then i thought maybe he's business partner. Then i said to him i don't have money until tmr morning, then he said i have 6 hours before the bank arrest me. That i tried to borrow from my friend, and also my parents. Luckily my friend showed me up this blog. So my next task was to cancel my parcel tmr 6.a.m. Becareful with this no, here's the number+60 11-5125 7090

  112. Yvonne, pardon me but I find you very naïve. You want to sell your camera and lose your common sense. The first moment from the scammer I already knew that was a scammer and scammers are all over Mudah.my. 1. Why would they want to get from you when they could buy it in their country without heavy shipping cost? and with no warranty? 2. Nigerians scammers are all over the world. They are angry not because of anything but because they are angry they may not get the money so they lost the patience. 3. Why would anyone spend hours and hours talking to you to get a second hand electronic? Have you ever bought a second electronic from overseas from an unknown person? Would you? 4. Puerto Rico is not a US state. It belongs to USA yes. Just google the zipcode it will show you 00791 is postal code for city Humacau, state is PR. Not the other way round. Anyhow, people who are scammed are normally without common sense. I surprise you even talked so much with the person. I would have blocked him the moment he (yes it's a black Nigerian scammer just like the ones on dating sites with Caucasian models' photos).

  113. BTW, since we are talking about Mudah.my, there are tons of Nigerian scammers there. If you see great cars like Honda CRV selling at 50K no need to go ask, it's a scam because it is not possible someone would sell a nice CRV for 50k. They either put a wrong phone no with strange digits or they simply do not put. They only put email. When you send you get a ready made article about how the car is overseas and on the way here blah blah blah. Many times I complained to Mudah about scammers and very strange they block me but allowed the scammers to continue. I seriously seriously believe Mudah.my is run by scammers or at least they have associates. So be careful. I have never been scammed. I can detect one in just a few sentence but many people cannot have the common sense I have or sometimes greed can hurt you. Don't sell to overseas people and if it's too good to be true it definitely is.

  119. I posted on mudah then not long after a malaysian no. +60 17 815 6034 contacted me thru whatsapp. His first text to me was" did you still have your bag for sale" " whats the best price" I was aware of his texts but didnt reply immediately just bcos I was annoyed like no greeting at all. Tetiba msg org xde hai ke hello ke kan. So I just biar for a while, not long after he actually called me thru whatsapp and I'm like okay wtf tak sabar langsung. Mind you its already midnight okay. So I Replied "yes hello still available.my best price is Rm170. May I ask, whr did you saw my ad?" He then replied to me "mudah.my. my wife said that bag is very cost (lol, broken english guys) am willing to pay you 800" so I replied to him, " haha why tho? I bought that bag for RM 260 only. Whr you comes from sir/mam? Whats your name?" He replied "[16/02 12:10 AM] ‪+60 17-815 6034‬: am from Singapore gill man barrack alexisandra block 185564 road Gillman
    [16/02 12:10 AM] ‪+60 17-815 6034‬: call me James Sandra
    [16/02 12:10 AM] ‪+60 17-815 6034‬: what about you
    [16/02 12:10 AM] ‪+60 17-815 6034‬: can I know you
    So I just replied: Oh okay Mr James. Sorry I don't do shipping outside malaysia. But you no phone is obviously from malaysia tho. Specifically from sabah? ( bcos the no is from sabah I know la cos Im sabahan. Hahaha) so he just replied:"okay" And typing for a while(probably thinking another lie) so I just decided to immediately blocked him. obviously thats something fishy like wth will pay you more than what you offer? So guys Please don't fall into this scam. Then not long after I blocked him another malaysian no.+60128028318 called me. I was furious like wtf these people dont stop. So I go to mudah and took down my iklan. Delete it. then I googled bout this and found your blog. Thanks Yvonne for this entry. This eye-opening. SO GUYS, BEWARE AND LEARN FROM US.NEVER EVER EVER POSTED ADS ON MUDAH.MY. IT IS FULL OF SHIT AND PENIPUU. I BET MUDAH.MY IS ALSO RUN BY SCAMMERS.

  124. Someone name FARHADILA HAKIB just contacted me yesterday regarding items i want to sell at mudah. Strategy almost the same but they using local phone no and local address to post the items. Very daring.

    At first the email not fishy, after 4-5 email it sound suspicious so I decide to google. Thanks to you because written about this. Now I just ignore the mail

  125. Fully agreed, I also almost kena...when we are genuine seller, but a lot of fake buyer out there. Especially foreigner buyer..they come in many form..using free call phone number, reverse phone services which may end you with high charges call from oversea. Numbers such as +234 / Nigeria the worst.even with USA +1 (443) +1 863 and many other free and time limited phone numbers...be careful.. just block it..
