"Ann Gwan" is just an alias, they can use any names, but the trick they use is still the same, so just beware of anyone asking for the same request.I just got a request from Ann Gwan, saying that she/he needs the items as a gift for her/his friend overseas. Please take note of this scam!
Haha I got one from Cassandra also. Shutter count for a lens also. I replied "?" when she asked for assistance and she never replied thereafter :bsmilie:Hi all, thanks for this thread, just staved off a similar (90% similar) attack. This time her name is Mrs Cassandra Leong, and she's asking for my 24-105 F4L. Same modus operandi, same way of attack.
Appended below is what I have received.
Hello Isaac Ong
I am writing to know if this article is still available, if it is, please what is shutter count? What accessories do you have and what is your final price? Kindly respond as soon as you can in order for us to proceed with the deal.
Asking for shutter count for a lens? Good job.
