Friend say Carousell less scammer compare to mudah.

Mudah is part of Carousell. They are sister companies.

Is very annoying that these buyers from Carousell call out a price that’s 30% lower than your selling price everytime trying their luck. Like do that expect every seller to markup and bump their selling price by 20% and above to profit ?

I've sold close to 50 items on the app. It's only for those high prices items that they'll ask for discount. But never did I meet anyone that asks for 30% cut. There's only 1 that request for full refund as it's wholely my mistake for not packing the item carefully before selling.

Are greys usually quite reliable or better do my due diligence too ?

I noticed there are lots of grey at Berjaya and Amcorp.

Just concerned if they may swap out a replica for a brand new watch , or quite unlikely ?

I guess it all depends on how long they've been in business.. and how long they intend to stay in it..

Question is, if something does go wrong, would they instead turn around and claim that you the buyer had swapped out the items instead...

ya kan, that's the iffy part. if it doesn't happen nvm la, if it does...panjang cerita....ultimately the adage "don't buy the watch, but the seller" is apt

Don’t see a grey feedback thread here so posting here instead.

Anyone dealt with VS watch and jewellery at Times Square ?

Indeed.
I'f I post my handphone numbers on my sales thread in Mudah, will always receive 3-4 whatsapp messages from local or overseas numbers with the same modus operandi.
But so far no such messages if I post in Carousell

The sellers history is important. If the seller is new, will be good to meet the seller for COD. If amount is a lot, would be good to meet at a safe place such as at the bank 😊. The seller can bank in the cash immediately rather than risk carrying the cash.
