    • Very very obvious it’s a scam. How obvious more you want it to be? Maybe the person come to your house and wear a “i’m a scammer” t-shirt?

      The email address was given but later edited by our friendly moderator. I believed she is doing it to prevent us from falling into the trap.

      coz not everybody is aware.

      make it a point to tell your family about it.

      especially old folks who are more prone to get conned.

      Thank you for the sound advice. We shall and must not give them the impression that we (Singaporeans) are easy target.

      Sometime want to play along with them, but then need to pay for the bills.

      So, delete and ignore.

      Down to earth ya. Those are to make you more bankrupt.
