Why would you pay $400 for iPods?

Anonymous | 2019年6月24日

On Facebook I have come across this ad "Brand new apple Wireless Airpods" for SGD 150. listed by the user " Lehcim M Olbap". When contacted, they asked me to Whatsapp on +659083684?.

After exchanging messages on whatsapp, they have confirmed this to be genuine and promised me that they don't take your money for nothing blah blah blah .. i have finally transferred the money of 150 SGD to have the item delivered to my home by 1 PM. I even confirmed how is the package delivered , is it by post or will they send some one from their company to delivery. They confirmed they will have someone from the company to deliver.

After that,  to my horror, I get an email stating the customs official authority at the airport has already inspected and examined your package and they insisted to approve gst and insurance fee but not to commence now until the package gst and insurance fee is cleared... and asked to pay 250 SGD more to another POSB Savings account
Account no: 24953258?

by now you know that this is a scam and you have been royally cheated. The actual cost of Airpods is 290. Why on earth you will pay $400 for it?

So be mindful and be vigilant.
