Just posting for members attention, I had response for my item via Whatsapp (not sure whether originated from this forum or Mudah) which seems very suspicious. Requested Bank A/C, email details and offering to have 'Agent' collect item from my home. Being suspiscious due to inflated offer I asked more details regarding identity and where my listing had been seen, enquirer did not respond further and removed Whatsapp contact image and online availability, messages ceased. Number concerned is +60 11-2691-5289.

Yes bro. One of my also came across this. Rather suspiscious. The buyer will nego abit. Say rm1000. Then he suggest the will bank ins say 1200 to ur account. And ask the seller to pay the additional 200 to the agent who is picking it up as a transport fees . It doesn't make sense at all.
Be careful on postage sales also. Friend of mine bank in 500 and nothing was being sent to him.
Just a tot for all of us.

This one was more obvious. Asked for my lowest price, I suggested my price already low but might indude shipping and I asked him what he would be prepared to pay. His answer ' my budget is RM2000' !! . Obviously either a scam or maybe just a stupid timewaster.

Hi redvet,
I'm sorry to hear that.
I do hope the lead not from our forum here as we apply stringent checking before approving a member registration, such as phone number and I/C number.

However, we could not admit that human are able to outsmart any rules applies.
Hence, we would appreciate if you could double confirm with the buyer where do they find out your posting.
If it's from the forum, please do provide us with the user id and email for us to take any further action.

Please do not hesitate to pm me should you have or require more info.

Cheers!

Probably Mudah. They are not too stringent on standards. I've recently looked at a post for a TopSpin Mallet 4 putter which I don't believe to be original because the US Topspin site don't list a Mallet 4. One of the pictures displayed is copied from the genuine USA Manufacturers site showing Specification, but there are differences in the actual putter shown from the USA model. There is a condition when listing an item on Mudah which asks you to certify originality but Mudah don't check things too much.
