Stomper Ethan shared how he was threatened by a seller on e-commerce platform Shopee after requesting a refund for a tin vintage music poster he had ordered.

"I received death threats from the seller after refunding a product that was poorly cropped and did not match their picture," he said.

In screenshots shared by the Stomper, the seller called him a 'big liar' and said his 'whole family should run to hell happily'.

He also messaged him and said: "F*** you, you're a liar, you're gonna be happy to go to hell.

"Your whole family will die."
