Got cheated by a Carouseller and end up with a lemon. Rather than throw it away and increase e-waste, item was given away. But post will remain to educate and remind all to be vigilant and careful of dishonest people. NEW DEVELOPMENT: For easy illustration, I shall name the guy I bought from A and the guy who originally owns the damaged TV B. A saw B's listing in Carousell of a damaged 65" TV. A approached B and offered to buy the TV highlighting that A can fixed and would be willing to buy it at $120. A proceeded to get Lalamove to collect the TV from B. B sent me a DM on 14 June 2019 to share that he was shocked I was cheated of the TV he sold to A previously without any fix and with the original damage. I guess A could not repair or found that it was not worth repairing, thus, deciding to try to pull off a scam to recoup and earn some dishonest profit from it. The sickening thing was that when I subsequently got conned (cos I let my guard down) and bought the TV, A had the cheek to ask me to enjoy this "monster" and he will be missing it. 🙄 Wow... Lol what a heartless liar. ****************************************** Anyway, I am not the only one. Saw another brother the other day listing a 50" Full HD TV that is cracked too. He, too, was cheated by another dishonest seller. Our lessons should remind all to be careful, and not too trusting. 1. Check all products and even if a deal is too good, don't buy it if you are unable to check it. No excuses should be acceptable. 2. Don't accept offers (in-app) unnecessarily. Bargain and share that you will make an offer or accept an offer once deal is completed (to exchange positive feedback for each other). No point risking your Carousell reputation unnecessarily, as there will be those who wants to threaten the good feedback you received with a bad deal. 3. I have gotten good deals from sincere and genuine sellers who are going back to their home countries. And I got this lemon. Point is, regardless of their reason for selling, test, test and test the products. 4. Don't be sold by online warranties. Unless they have a fairly reasonable feedback, warranties online without a proper business registration number is still not easy to enforce unless you have certain key information to pursue further with CASE or the police. 5. Carousell is not Lazada or Amazon. They have no obligation to assist you with these lemon buys. Onus is on you to be very diligent and careful. While there are good deals, not all humans are good. That's just human nature. 6. Always get the number of the person you are dealing with. If possible, have a quick chat with them, especially when you are about to embark on a big ticket purchase. Having said that, some businesses really only allow communications via Carousell. If it is the latter, you have to make a judgement call and decide if it is worth the risk. 7. Don't be too quick to marry yourself to an item. Until the deal happens, you can always change your mind if you feel that the seller is not trustworthy. Don't let guilt or greed rule your transaction. This is why, if possible, don't make an offer officially unnecessarily. 8. If they are asking someone to meet you for the deal, be wary. It could be their scheme to evade you or post themselves as their friends, just so that you do not ask further questions during deal time, which makes it easier for them to pass you lemons. Will share more if I think about more tips. :)
