CARISSA'S STORY HERE:

"Hi I'm Carissa, and recently I was scammed of close to a thousand dollars on Carousell (or hell), one of the most popular two-sided e-commerce platforms.

It was a big ticket item of a new smartphone. As it was an order with delivery, I was to pay beforehand but the phone never arrived and the seller simply went M.I.A. The seller sounded so legitimate and even had a business e-mail and customer service with the account. The account also had really great reviews, so I couldn’t even second guess that a scam would occur. I made a police report after that.

I have now learnt to be more discerning and more cautious when making online purchases. I will also try to arrange for meet ups instead."
