What a Scam

Short notes: Postponed my Nuffnang party Experience post. ^^

I was walking out from the Monorail and headed towards the shopping mall when this boy came up gave me a flyer and ask me to open it. Once I opened, he went so excited and told me i won the grand prize with the mark on the flyer matching the one on his hand. Here’s the scamming process. LoL

I didn’t went but I wondered what will happened if I really went to that address?

Got myself robbed? Got myself kidnapped? Got myself raped?

Or maybe I should bring some cops with me and go. Lol.

Or maybe it wasn’t a Scam after all? O.o

    It ever happen to my parents once in Kuching. I think that time I was in secondary school.

    There is a people that passes a flyer to us something like a lucky draw. Then we scratch the lucky card or whatever it calls. The guy seems so excited than us, while we scratching the card. We haven’t finish scratching, he seems like already know that we going to win something..

    Thank God that time got my Daddy la, he really don’t believe lor, I really can’t imagine that time if my daddy is not around with my mummy. My mummy sure believe it coz that time I can see how her facial expression shows that she was excited for the prizes..hahahaha..

    OMG~ This scam is still going on… Anyway Thank God that you are smart and aware of this situation. =)

    I just work nearby. The Lot10 office. Everyday these monkeys see my face also still want to pass me the flyers. Me and my colleague alwiz have to tai sam diu dam to walk the bridge over to sg wang to eat lunch.. so cham.. :( These people are so young, I think there was one barely 13 years old!!

    I almost kena the scam. They pass to me so I mah open lor. Then I open alr, the fella talk until all saliva at my face… Haihz.. I was rushing for time and by the time he explain finish, I say nvm I got no time, since I won a prize, I give you la… He still talk and I just walk away.

    I can tell you many ppl fell for the scam. I saw it with my own eyes. The husband and wife were tourists. Really follow them duno go where… They always go for the ladies, especially those who look blur, old, alone.

    Anyways, to update you guys, now they all smarter already. Now they got wear tag to show they are real but I saw their face before so I know they are scammers. Warn your family and friends yea? Got ID doesn’t mean real.

    Reply: Yaya, that’s the bridge where I was..

    Wahhh there’re people who really fall for the trap eh?
    Yea, I’m warning them through my post.. :D

    omg that happened to me once! i was with my girlfriend and another friend, and this middle aged dude came up to me and asked me to open the card.. he didn’t say i won a car straight away, but he said i had a chance to win any of the prizes listed in the thing. same thing, he asked for my atm but i said i don’t have one lol. so he just asked me to go to the office n crap like that. i’m quite a gullible dude, i might’ve fallen for it if my girlfriend wasn’t there -.- oh and it was outside the sungai wang monorail as well o_o maybe the authorities should do sth abt it lol

    Reply: Gosh the same place like me.
    I think we should let the press or the authorities know about it before more victims are falling into their traps.

    i got into that situation as you before. there’s more than 1 standing at the monorail station and all located at different corner. at 1st they did not know I’m a Chinese, so they came forward and asked am I Chinese and i said “yeah”. then they start telling me about the card from Jusco which will be giving them RM 1 for every card they open,etc.. So i listen to whatever he said and then all of the sudden he said I’ve won the grand prize. i said “oh thank you, but I don’t need it”. i walked away and they kept holding me back by saying “No, its true that you won it.” and all that i can think of is “sorry, i have to go. bye” now they’re hooking up victims at LowYat and the bridge between Times Square & Sg Wang. They make me feel disgusted to be part of Malaysian.
