Forumer you are complaining against: Some one pretending to be a user named TamashiiHeroes

Item being sold/bought: No purchase as yet

Original thread link: https://forum.lowyat.net/index.php?showtopic=3875003&hl=

Date of transaction: n/a

Details of the complaint :

Yesterday 04/12/18, I posted an inquiry on a thread by TamashiiHeroes selling PS4 games, requesting best price for a PS game CD.

I immediately received a whatsapp message from a person claiming to be TamashiiHeroes, stating he is willing to sell the game for a discounted price included postage. I was urged to pay immediately so he can post the Cd out for me.

This scammers details as follows:

Phone number: 017 666 1562
Maybank : 162013018011
Name of Acc Holder : Wan Mohamed Shafie


I was surprised that I got a direct whatsapp instead of a pm thru LYN itself, so I checked and found that the number this guy was using is different than the one used by the actual seller. Also, it seems he may have looked up my number online. After asking him for verification by replying to my LYN pm he went quiet. I had also pm the original poster TamashiiHeroes, but have not received any reply as yet.

Just wanted to share with everyone to be aware of this.

They're the same person or a few of them working together to scam forumers. A lot more forumers are affected.
Best way to find or track that person is via his SMK TTDI school as revealed by another forumer.

Wow. He's still at it huh..
Another forumer managed to find his father's number and also the college he went to. Maybe can try your luck by contacting his father. Pm me if u need the details.

Always confirm the seller identities thru lyn before proceed with payment. You can simply ask the seller to send you a mssg.
