Replied to one of the PS5 restock Twitter accounts and he DMed me asking if I needed one. We talked on the phone and it actually took a while as the apps used just wouldn't funnel the money. He even called me back the next day to say he shipped it. All seems on the up and up but its now been a week, my bank account was a hacked soon after and the number no longer works. A very expensive lesson to learn to just google the phone number first as it popped up on this site.
