Beware of Conman

I would like warn all forumers about this conman.

A summary of this conman's info are as below:
Name: WONG JIN SIONG
Maybank Acc No.: 1582 6620 5699
Hand Phone No.: 014-5987072
User Name: gundown76
Email Add.: gundown76@gmail.com

I've posted a WTB (canon ef 80-200 f2.8L) thread on a local forum and the conman under the user name "gundown76" (gundown76@gmail.com) sms me (h/p no. 014-5987072) for my email add. He then send me a series of pics which are actually downloded from some other forums. We then nego on the price, he said that he is from Miri and I'm in Kuching, I then banked in (RM1350) the money into his Maybank account no "1582 6620 5699" under the name "Wong Jin Siong". He didn't respond since then. Tried called him and SMS him but no reply and no answering of phone.

When I found out that this a fraud sales, I then serch the web for the pictures that he send to me and found that the pictures are actually posted on the Digital Grin Photography Forum (http://www.dgrin.com).

When I search the net for this guy's name, it is found that I'm not the first victim. His name and details has been posted on other forums too. Refer to the link below:

So sorry to hear of this but I hope others can learn from this. Don't send money to strangers if you dunno or have never met them.

Even for my mass orders, all I ask is RM50 and the rest COD when we meet up.

I always stick to the rule when I find a "bargain" - 'If it seems too good to be true, It is!'

You are smart to look for the Canon 80-200mm EF L lens. It's an excellent performer and tends to be overlooked when many tend to opt for the current USM 70-200mm L version.

But surely you'd know the 80-200mm does not go for around RM1350 only? That's the red flag in the first place. Too good to be true and you fell for it.

Anyway, I hope you can get it from some other source. You would not regret it. A fair price would be around RM3k I guess. Not easy to find a mint example considering the age of this version.
