Hi,

I am in the process of a transaction in Carousell. I was selling an item for 50rm and the buyer transferred 500RM. Now, she wants me to transfer first the difference of the amount and the email received says it's on hold. That i need to transfer the difference first. And now the buyer is saying that legal actions will be taken if this is not done.

Anyone here experienced this? This looks like a scam. Just would like to confirm.

No money went in to the account. The lady is so adamant that I transfer it fast.lol

I told her to get the reference number and call her bank to reverse it. I know that there are no banks who holds a transfer and let the receiver send the difference.

are the RM500 in your account now or what?
If its still on hold then its obviously a scam as she can claim it back with your RM450.
She won RM950.
If she still wanna say take legal action then let her be, if money not in your account then how you wanna give her back.

*If she wanted you to transfer the difference to another than the sender account then its KOLANFIRM she already scam people RM500 and using you as scapegoat.

One simple rule: do not give back what you didn't receive in the first place.

If you don't have the money in your account, there is nothing further to worry about.

Yes looks like a scam. VERY LIKELY IS. But if you think logically and apply some reasoning, you'll see through these things.

No money transferred to you account then no talk.
Ask her to report police if she doesn't satisfy
Plus report it to corousell ban her.

You know why scam like this happen? Because many people report con man took money and not reply their msg later. So they "act" the victim card and reverse the scam on to you.

hello!

I actually had the exact same case.

so this one user is actually a scammer. she is actually selling iphone to a guy and that guy will transfer you the money cause she gives your bank acc number.

Lets say she sold the iphone 500 ringgit, RM50 is like "your comission" for accomodating her evil work.

That time the person who kena scam (the one who bought the iphone from her) messaged me on facebook and told the whole thing. This is dangerous as this is an untraceable crime to her. Anything, any report will be reported unto you cause the RM500 went to your account!

My advice, report to the police. Check the name o the sender in your bank statement.
if you can kinda trace from the acc name, do it and see what happens. If cannot, report to the police. At least you have made a move to report and they will advice you what to do next

Very likely the scammer is Nigerian guy, not a girl.
