A DEAL too good to be true is likely to be a scam. At least 30 people learnt this the hard way after placing deposits ranging between a few hundred ringgit and RM7,000 to book secondhand vehicles purportedly sold at half the market rate on an e-marketplace site.

Chong Wai Motor Enterprise manager Wong Kok Choong, 32, said many victims came to his used car dealership in Kepong, which the scammer claimed to represent, only to find that they had been duped.
