WHEN I TOLD SCAMMER THAT I DID NOT HAVE A COMPUTER, HE HUNG UP!

Impersonation Scam 
Received a call from 65838972 on 4dec2019 , a person claiming that he’s calling from SingTel and that my router is being misused by someone else,so to fix that i must open my computer and install what he says. I just said we dont have a computer and the guy hung up immediately.fellow residents, beware of this scam!

Impersonation Scam 
Received a phone call from "Singtel" officer with a heavy Filipino accent. He claims to be a technician from Singtel and have detected that my internet connection is unstable. He told me to go to my wifi router and tell him how many lights are currently blinking. I said " no, as my wifi is perfectly fine" and he just hung up the phone on me. The call sounded really off, as he called from a mobile phone, the background noise seems like he is by the roadside and he called my hp no. When the wifi plan is registered under my mum's. Nothing was lost except few seconds of my time when I finally found out that it was a scam!

Lottery Scam
 I received a call from this +966 55 236 9019 with a name ‘Starhub Company’ telling me that I won $50,000 dollars. This guy was persuading me to get my money when I didn’t even join any lucky draw and I’m not even using postpaid for my sim card. I quickly end the call. Beware of SCAMS!


Credit-for-Sex Scam
 i found a Taiwanese girl name of meng (萌萌) on LOCANTO WEBSITE. She was offering sex for VERY CHEAP PRICE FOR $100 2 hours, $200 4 hours WHICH GOT MY INTEREST. I CONTACTED HER TROUGH LINE TO ASK FOR MORE INFORMATION, MAINLY IS wanted to know more about transaction. (because i was very afraid of getting scam) i asked her a few times if it's fine to pay with cash but she ignored them completely. she said she is living at 401 hougang blk 10 so we decided to meet there. after i have reached the hdb flat she asked me to take a picture of the area and guide me to an axs machine through phone call. (no, the one who called me wasn't a man, i believe is her herself, with taiwanese accent) i suspected it was a scam when she told me to purchase rmb500 alipay credit. the reason she came out with is she is a student and offering sex as part time job, paying with money would get catch easily. i hang up the call and did research on the spot about alipay scamming and found out a lot of men encountered the same experience, even the pricing and technique are exactly the same. i only spent $16 for taking grab to her location in the whole incident.

Online Purchase Scam 
On a Friday afternoon, A buyer from gumtree watsapp me and says that he is interested to buy iPhone 11 pro max from me. he said that he is buying as a birthday gift for his daughter and he is working offshore. he will do an internet banking transfer to my account and arrange for the courier to pick up the item. he provided screenshots of the wire as proof of remittance and the bank statement as proof of deduction. he assured that the funds will hit my account. after the courier picks up the item, he requested for a picture of the airway bill. when I insisted of having a copy of his id and speak to him, he gets irritated and asked why I argue with him act childish. he claimed that if I need to speak to him, he will only be available the following day at 10am as he is out in the field. on the following day (Saturday) 1st thing in the morning, he provided a screenshot of a USA passport ID. after that asked for the airway bill again, if not he threatened that I am looking for a big problem soon and he has my details. about 10am he finally called and got annoyed on why I need to speak to him. he said that he needs the item to be delivered to his daughter urgently as his daughter going to a camp soon and time is running out. he reassured that there is no problem with the transfer and just a matter of another 1 to 2 days to hit my account. after receiving the item, over the whole experience, the buyer avoids speaking to me and purposely scheduled a certain timing when I insists. he gets agitated when he did not get hold of the airway bill picture and will says I argue and argue with him.

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.
