Bought this second hand iphone off Carousell from the user ‘chenlee89’ and turned out he handed me an icloud locked phone. A phone like this would also mean it is totally useless.
When I met up with him, I did not take a sim card along to test the phone.
I simply only made sure it could be switched on. It shows that we cannot be too trusting because there are still scammers like him out there. And i also did not know that you need to insert a simcard to test for the icloud lock function. So after going back home and inserting the simcard, i realized the problem. Called him on his phone but he did not pick up at all. When we parted, he still told me i could call him if there’s a problem.
Texted him over Carousell and Whatsapp but he read my messages and did not reply. After many hours of messages and about hundred of calls, he finally replied saying he was working and only will end work few more hours later.
He will then go home to check his iTunes password with his laptop. I waited again. Anyway, which job don’t allow you to pick up calls in so many hours and why he can read my whatsapp but don’t reply?
I started having doubts about this person. When it was time, i messaged him again and as usual, his reply was delayed again saying he just finished work. I was really fed up and ask for a refund. This guy then blocked me off his Whatsapp. I then proceeded to file a police report online.
Really hope the SPF will do something about such a person asap. Most probably think i’m some young girl and easy to bluff. According to his facebook, he should be living at West Coast area.
