Here is his story:

It all started with Facebook as I saw an advertisement for a part-time job ( with Shopee logo) so I click in to show my interest. After someone Contacted me to explain the job.

All it needed was a Shopee link sent to me I will have to click in and took a screenshot of the product to send it back and they send me a payment detail to ask me to make payment immediately and send back a payment proof and within 10 mins i will be able to receive the full amount paid together with the commission. There would be commissions and incentives given for each task given. However, each time the payment amount gets bigger n bigger all starts with below 100 then 100 plus then to a few hundred.

If you did not complete the task they will say the system is unable to make PAYMENT to me.
