This is 100% a heterometrus . you could tell by the the shape of his pediphalps(spelling). Also i dont see any granulation on them but it would be difficult to see it in this small pic. its not an emperor thats for sure

Sorry, gotta be a clear top down to see granulation patterns. I know, getting a clear pic of a scorp isnt the easiest thing in the world.

Pet shops should really learn what they're selling to people. I was in a pet shop buying crickets and came out with a "forest scorpion" as well. Turned out to be a psychopathic cavimanus. The same pet shop has a "tiger tarantula" and any question i ask recieves "dunno mate" and is a scabby looking thing anyway.
the 'i don't know what it is' happens at times, when i buy fish. i just don't buy it if i'm in doubt at all. maybe an earth tiger i think it's called

Earth tigers (haplopelma etc) are what they call tarantulas from Asia, baboons from Africa etc. It's definitely not an old world T my bet is that it's fasciatum tiger rump.
And so I'm not hijacking in anwway.....
That is definitely a scorpion you have there mate. Lol.
