Beware of fake buyers on Carousell and do not click on dubious links
Anonymous | 03 Aug 2022
I posted my item on Carousell for sale. Then a customer contacted me saying that he didn’t have paynow and that he would like to purchase my item, he would pay by courier Fedex.
Then he sent me a Fedex link starting with the https://fedex.dealf.online/. He informed me that he already paid for the courier fee and was waiting for me to receive the money from him via Fedex.
In the link there's a verified sign in front of the website as you can see in the photo once i click on the Fedex logo on the website it routed me to the main fedex website (real fedex website) as well.
Once I clicked receive funds they will ask for the card information then they'll ask for the otp which I didn't input the otp. A few seconds later i received an auto message from the bank about my otp and that I conducted a transaction on my card, which I didn’t.
So, I cancelled my visa.
Please beware of phishing scams and do not click on links that look dubious.
