nope, I didn't ask for his IC. my only requirement for him was that I will only post the item once the money is physically in my bank. So I don't have any other info, other than his phone number. He had tried scamming another user on Carousell around the same time. Someone commented on an item he was selling (some Michael Kors handbag). The page is no longer there coz he has deleted his account, but I got the notification coz I had posted a warning on that item as well.
Ohhh, I wasn't quick enough to snapshot the IC but I remember seeing the IC the scammer sent to me was like a 12 year old boy.
Actually that evening when this dude called me, he picked the wrong time to mess with me and I actually did call up Credit Europe Bank in Amsterdam to check on the authenticity of the account number as well and was told the account number doesn't exist or some sort but was assured that it is a scam.
Furthermore, I believe Credit Europe bank doesn't have a branch in the UK since on their webpage, they do not have a representative office in Britain
It didn't catch my eye at first when I received the email, but that fraud the email was sent from a Gmail account. That was the obvious fake because no bank will use Gmail / Yahoo Mail / Outlook.com but have their own domain instead.
The dude tried to call me again and I told him, I am checking the authenticity of your transaction with both Credit Europe and Maybank, and that's when the dude got nasty and started using profanities and threatening to take legal action against me.
Thought of playing along and tell him I will get our country's best lawyer Tan Sri Apandi Ali
