Online seller on a popular marketplace could be a scammer

Online Purchase Scam

Kept insisting no self collect, only delivery within 3 hours can reach.

1) price was too cheap ($750) for a brand new graphics card valued at $1350 onwards
2) even with cheap price, delivery was free
3) insisted on no meet ups and only delivery
4) Carousell account seemed to be a personal account that was hacked, with no prior sales of similar item.

When I told him I reported to police, he immediately replied "your father" and phone number was no long contactable.

The advertisement on carousell also switched from user "Kovi" to current user "tacticalindustries" with same product and details but with a different Whatsapp number.
