PayPal Email Scam
Online Purchase Scam
Scammer contacted me on whatsapp to purchase my used camera and lens to be shipped to one address in the Philippines. i was cautious at first and scammer assured me money will be sent via PayPal and released once packaged was received. by the time i realised the PayPal payment was faked, I had already sent out the package via Fedex. Fedex Singapore was unhelpful in stopping and returning the package. they merely put up the halt request and even after I told them the pacage is on the delivery van, still repeated the same message to assure me. giving up on them, I called Fedex philppines and successful halt and got back my package in time. the scammer has been active for sometime, see forum thread below. he frequently changed his mobile number and gmail address, but the address in the Philippines are consistent.
