Hi, do you have any idea what country it is from? I am thinking maybe a young Heterometrus madrasapatensis or Scorpio maurus fuscus 'dark morph'.

I have no idea what country it is from, it's from my work at a wildlife centre/zoo, we got asked to take it in because it came in with a pack of clothes for one of the shops in our shopping centre, we have had it for about a year now, and nothings really changed about it, hope this helps you a bit more!

Where did the pack of clothes come from? Looks almost like a Euscorpius sp., which looks very similar to the American genus Uroctonus.
