Impersonation Scam
 On the 3rd december 2019, Tuesday morning at about 11am. There is a hacker that tries to hack into my internet router this morning by impersonating as a Singtel technical representative. He asked me if i am the owner and if i am at home. he even told me that there is tehcnical problem that their end cannot solve and the owner(myself) needs to solve it. He asked me to use my own laptop to access the router by pressing the "windows key" button and follow by "R" and kept saying that the owner needs to solve the internet issues on his side, and their technical side is facing problem. I kept asking him about my particulars since Singtel trading representative will know my particulars. He could not give me my details and I immediately know that it is a scam. I put down the phone and quickly called Singtel hotline 1688 to find out that it is a scam. INDEED IT IS A SCAM. because singtel technical representative will never call unless there is request by the user for callbacks. I I have also informed the police at 1800 225-0000 of such case. luckily , i did not give any personal details to this person


I got to know this lady on Locanto.  Lady agreed that i should pay her $200 for 4 hours of sex and massage

I then proceeded to choa chu kang mrt and was told by her that she will get a friend to call me to check if i’m a police or whatsnot.

So this guy by the name of 啊坤(Ah kun)
Told me that Due to me being a First timer and all to protect me and the girl from being scam, That Instead of paying cash, i should buy alipay credits from the axs instead.

As i only had cash with me i told him I couldn’t top up axs due to the needs of using a card for payment and then He persuaded me to find a atm or find a fRiend to TranSfer me first and i can pay back later.

So After talking awhile and walking around like an idiot to find a deposit machine, I topped up $200 (1000rmb) as agreed, then shortly after he told me to transfer another $1200 as a deposit in case I do something to hurt the girl. I was told that I would get a refund after my session.

I was already feeling like it’s a scam when i was told to purchase the alIpay credit but still proceeded to topped that $200 alipay credits.

Then i told the guy on the phone that i don’t have $1200 and even if i do have it on me I won’t be giving it to them and then he started threatening me that he would find me and my family and beat the shit out of us since I "played him out".

I know that he can’t do anything so I told him that I would be making a police report.

Warning to all male users out there: Please Do not fall prey to such scam. There are scams out there and do not be threatened by these scammers!

Don’t make the same mistake i did.



I posted an ad about looking for work from home jobs on gumtree. someone contacted me by introducing himself as "boon" and he is from "rebox sg". he offered $600 weekly for me to post ads on social media and websites. the ad include pictures of apple iphone xr 128gb for the price of sgd 650 and iphone x 256gb for the price of sgd 700. i posted the ad on carousell as instructed. about half an hour later, a carousell user warn me about the scammer. He insisted on me calling the number (boon) using normal line. i tried calling and realise that the number was a dead line. i was able to reach him via what'sapp call and messages. i was lucky that someone reached out before anything happened. i deleted all my ads immediately. i hope there were no money lost by the victims.


1) I was trying to rent out a spare room at rentinsingapore and then this person claiming to be yeo siew lian emailed me about the room's availability. Thinking it was another query, I replied yes.

It was then she claimed that she's currently working in Germany and would like to move back to Singapore. She then further claimed that she does not have a phone nor she has any online banking access. Furthermore, she works late and by then the bank will have closed. Hence, she asked me if I have a PayPal and whether can she placed a deposit via paypal. Suspecting it was a scam, I ask her why need to place through paypal? She then forwarded her supposedly 'NRIC' to me.

So I went to google her name separately and realised there was a similar scam of the same name happened previously. The scammer would sell the same story and then once you replied yes to the paypal account, the scammer will send you a fake screenshot showing that he or she has deposited money but will need you to send the money in order to activate the dormant account and unblock the fund transfer. However, in actual fact, the scammer didn't transfer any funds at all.

2) it happened 3 days after I first posted my ad on the website.

3) none luckily.

Scammer got a loan using my bank details

Here is a story about scams in Zambia. It happened in September 2018
Scammer claimed to have connections with people who can make my father's pension be paid faster. It was an irritating story how I have been traveling to Lusaka for my father's package after he died. But through Facebook a Scammer inboxed me that he could help me through his uncle who worked from the pensions offices.He calmed to me that i would have the money paid instantly. It all turned to be a loan scam.

After asking for my details including the bank details he managed to get a loan from the worst financial institution called getBuks in Lusaka. The getBuks financial services are the dumbest in everything they do. Not competent and easy to scam. They are agents of Scammers.
He got ZMW15k too bad.
