  1. I lodged a complaint with Singapore Police on 17th January regarding a gold jewellry scam executed by De Silva Jewellers situated in Tanglin Shopping Centre. Brief details are:

    I gave a large amount of 18k gold to De Silva, a mixture of White and yellow pieces, and asked him to melt them and remake two bangles, to my own design. I accepted his quote for this work and after many months did receive two bangles. I then saw evidence which proved De Silva had not in fact melted all of my original pieces, and several of them were on display for sale in his shop. I reported this to police, who immediately confiscated my pieces which De Silva had fraudulently kept, and said they would investigate. Despite me providing police with photographic evidence of all gold items given to De Silva for melting, plus corresponding weights for each item, and also producing evidence that he had tried the same scam with a friend of mine, the police decided De Silva had no case to answer, and won't even tell me what has happened to the confiscated items, which in themselves are worth several thousand dollars. PLEASE DO NOT GET CAUGHT OUT. Despite the evidence I provided, plus a witness statement from another person he had tried to scam, no action has been taken and the police refuse to communicate further. I no longer tell people what a wonderful place Singapore is, I share the above story with them and they inevitably conclude that corruption thrives in Singapore and is condoned by the authorities

    1. Hi,

      I am also a victim of fraud and despite giving full evidence, I was told the case is closed without reason. Apparently, if the Attorney-General Chambers (State lawyers) decide there is no case, the police just parrot the conclusion.

      I have also heard that this gahmen department is horribly under-staffed. Maybe that explains your further injustice.

    2. Sometime it is not fraud. It is you people that do not understand law.

    3. I got scam by $30 i have the person posb number only if i report to the police, will the person be tracked and found? and what about my money....

    4. Beware of hermes birkin scam for Singaporeans.she claims to have staff discount in Hermes Florida.

      She uses the name SYDNEY DALIA OR LISA DALIA. She will provide you every little detail, photos, receipt reference and tracking number and will keep in touch with you very closely like a trustworthy person. when item is shipped after bank payment. You WILL receive your parcel, NO BAG, instead she delivers a used bra and a hair brush to humiliate you.

      The following are her details.

      Account #: 4528276177

      Routing #: 241070417

      Name on account : Sydney dalia

      Bank name: Charter one, Citizens Financial Group


      Beware ladies!

  2. RedSnow Closet from Facebook was a scammer. They are selling polaroid cameras at a really cheap price, they also sell clothes and other fashion stuff. I bought a Fujifilm Pink Heart edition of Instax Mini 25 Polaroid Camera from them and they told me that the camera will be mailed out on Friday and I will be receiving it on Monday. But I never received the camera. I messaged them on Facebook to check on the status of the delivery of camera, but on the next day, I realised their profile is no longer in Facebook. RedSnow Closet just disappeared from Facebook over the night!!!

    Anyone know of this RedSnow Closet? the POSB account they use is 024-66236-5. Will be be able to get back my money if i report to the police?


    2. hi there, did you got scammed by Kimiyo Casing? I got scammed by them I not monday yet, but they are selling a product that official company haven't even release them yet. This is devastating, why is the same bank account still functioning, don't the police able to track this account owners down and nab them. I am gonna lodge a police report later on. Pissed. On wednesday a few buyer like me, purchase the item impulsively as we don't want to wait for the next batch. Slowly ppl start to comment and giving info on the original product, hence we notice we are scammed. And now i believe that this is really a scamming case.

    3. She's now KIMIYO CASING on Facebook and she's selling Instaxgram at $135 and films $35 for 200 (Er fishy??) and apparently alot of units have been paid for. Apparently it's just a concept, they aren't even out yet! People have been commenting on her page as they can't contact her. A scam is highly suspected. Her bank account number is 024-66236-5 too! Girls please make a police report ASAP.

    4. Same here too! and her facebook account has been deleted

    5. I just lodged a police report. I too bought the cam too! Those afftected pls lodge soon!

    6. My sis had been scammed by the same person too, that KNN!

    7. I also got scammed by her.. KIMIYO Casing. Did My Report, But also can't get back my money T.T And was told that there's risk when we blogshop on these unofficial shopping site. By right, we also in the wrong to shop online which is unofficial site. Next time i better shops from Ebay or Gmarket. Much safe. =( So Overall its seem alot of others reported but dont seem any useful.

    8. I got scammed too.

      Already reported to police n hope this idiot get caught!

      Using same account number and all cases of scam and y still not caught!!

    9. She's now Lovely Paradise on FB. And is starting another batch of Instagram Socialmatic to unsuspecting customers! She's still using the same bank account somemore.

    10. guy.. right now she change to lovely paradise in FB.. beware!!

    11. My Sis had been conned by this too! She had reported to the police, n we believe that this person had opened a new FB acc. to scam further, we are trying to get information from the newest acc.: Lovely Paradise

    12. She now knOw as lovely paradise in Facebook beware!!

    13. do you guys manage to get your money back for the scams?

    14. This evening, she had just deleted her latest FB account - Lovely paradise! Keep a lookout guys, maybe she might be opening a new account to scam people again.

    15. Hi girls You all can alert DBS / POSB so they can do something about her bank account. Investigate or freeze I guess. It's ALOT of money she's scamming. Might just be $100+ from each person, might not be a lot to some or it might even be a whole month's pocket money for another person. What I'm trying to say is money is still money. Everyone rally together and make a combined police report. The police is there to PROTECT US, the citizens. Even if we don't get our money back, JUSTICE has to be served to her. Keep those reports going in to the police, I'm sure it really isn't that hard to track her down. We've seen newspaper reports of scammers serving jail sentences. KIMIYO

    16. I got scammed by her too!! I lodged a complain already. POSB SAVINGS 024-66236-5!!! Many others lodged a complain but that person have not been arrested!! What is the police doing?!?!

    17. I sent Kimiyo Casing a message on the Instagram camera during her first spree. I believe she had her account set to private after receiving all the payments.

      Now she's doing a second spree on this same account because she just replied me. Beware!

    18. She changed her name to "Fel says " and deactivated her account after I busted her. Her real name is Felicia Goh. I got her new bank account number (DBS). I'm lodging a police report on her tmr. If anyone else wants to get your money back from her, please email me your receipt & other relevant details such as conversations with her at

    19. Hello people, thanks for reporting to the police! Let's help to make Singapore a better place for everyone!

    20. i just got scammed by her. On Tuesday she told me to transfer $280 to her POSB account 118-97327-5 for an instagram polaroid camera. She was using the name Fel Says. She was supposed to get back to me today but I saw that her account is deactivated. I did some checks and found that no such camera exists and its all a scam. i have made a police report against her.

    21. I have been assigned an investigation officer and I think it will help if more people who got cheated report her too. Please email me if you want to report her and hopefully get your money back.

  3. There is this girl by the name of Christanna Johnson Williams who used an email address ( created at Yahoo India. She sent me several emails claiming to be a simple person looking for a good business partner. A google of that name reveals a black lady who is neither in business nor from India. Then she called me on my mobile phone and spoke in a heavy accent and offered some 'business' which I could not make out clearly. I hung up the phone on her.
    She is really fishy, so I thought I should warn others about her.

  4. I have an e-commerece website, when they first contacted me and ask if I take credit cards which is strange because I have all (4) credit cards in a Logo on my front page of my website. When you say yes, they will order from 1500.00 to 4500.00 worth of product all in multiples of what ever product they choose. They are usually pick the very expensive items. They immediately start asking you to ship asap, i wait for tracking number they say. They ask everyday or every other day if you shipped yet. They wait until they know the package is shipped and in customs and then they report to the credit card company it was an unauthorized purchase. What stinks is , the scammer gets the product and if you have a pay-pal shopping cart like I do, pay-pal on this end takes the full amount of the order out of your account until it is settled. You have to go to the details link on pay pal in your account to see if you are eligible for seller protection when someone places an order. If not they take the entire amount out of your pay-pal account which puts you in the negative if you don't keep a lot of money in there. If you have seller protection, they leave the money in I guess and work out the dispute with the credit card company. These orders all have addresses that are shipped to a building on Airport Rd in Singapore, building No. whatever. This is most likely where the freight forwarders are to ship somewhere else. I shipped one order and the dispute ended in my favor but shortly after I received 3 other big orders all going to some building on airport rd in Singapore. They are telling there buddies they found some sucker in the states that will send out the product. I have since stopped all sales to Singapore and if I do get an order, I immediately refund the money right back. I hope this helps save someone from this scam of people ordering product off your website and then claiming unauthorized purchase after you have sent the product. You lose the product and your account gets all screwed up for up to 30 days until they get it worked out.

  5. Fraudster Threatening Sex crime: I received a mail to call a number 9350 2840. The call got cut and received obscene message soliciting pros. I replied asking for identity and later a stupid scamster called from 85870482 stating that he is a cop and I need to meet him at jurong west police station. He said some guy having no 85958031 and complained about me because i messaged her daugher (mob9350 2840). I knew I did not msg anything wrong still he called me.
    I subsequently searched this number in the internet and i found a link that this guy/guys has/have been threatening many people link:
    These miscreants should be punished. Please suggest a way to post this link to police anonymously to help fellow singaporeans to face these kind of cheap crooks

  6. Be careful of Monroe Trends on Facebook selling MAC brushes and other cosmetics. Profile has been deleted but there might be similar scams online.

    After transferring $, seller came back with an offer to buy 2 products at a discounted price. I agreed and transferred more $. Said delivery will take about 1-2 weeks as items are from Canada warehouse.

    Seller then deleted facebook account and all I have is the account number. POSB SAVINGS :145-14097-8

    Please be careful when shopping online, especially with individual sellers.

    I got burnt this time :(

    Hope you get this on time, I made a trip to Johor Bahru, Malaysia and had my bag stolen from me with my passport, cash and credit cards in it. Unfortunately for me, I've made contact with my bank but they are not providing a fast solution. I will be glad if you can lend me some money to sort my self out of this predicament, I will pay back as soon as I return. Western Union transfer is the best option to send money to me. Let me know if you need my details(Full names/location) to make the transfer.

    1. This is a funny one. They basically spam all emails they have gathered.

  13. I've just been scammed recently by this "BEATS SHOPPEE" on Facebook selling Beats by Dr Dre products.
    They were having a "NATIONAL DAY HALF PRICE" promotion. So on 8th Aug i transferred to this POSB SAVINGS 209-73123-1.
    I was told if i transfer on 8th Aug(Wed), i will get my item latest by 10th Aug(Fri). However on Friday, the seller went quiet with all my messages to the number 85754854. Tried calling but couldnt get through. Check the fb & it was still active with the seller still adding friends. I saw 2 people already commented tht they have not receive their items as promised. Few hrs later, THE ACCOUNT WAS DEACTIVATED!
    The next day, i made a police report. But have yet to receive any updates.
    Do be careful guys when you made purchase online. :(
    Anyone with infos on this fb account,do let me know. :) N also anyone who've been scammed by the same person.

    1. This is the male version. Exactly the same, but from gum tree as"Singapore HDB One Bedroom Apartment For rent" Ad on Gumtree


      I got a contract job in an engineering company for a construction project as part of the structural engineers to build a highrise building in West Africa(NIGERIA). I am a Building tech specialist, so my accommodation period in Lagos will be about 4 years, so that's the reason why i am renting out the unit. I do not intend to make profit out of it all i want is to find a good and clean person to take good care of the place. I`m the owner of the unit and it is furnished but if you want you can make use of your furniture's and help keep mine in the storage locker which is situated both in the unit and in the building and these does not attracts any funds.

      The monthly rent am requesting for includes all utilities (water, electricity, Internet, cable, 1 parking spots, air conditioning, dishwasher, garbage disposal, microwave, refrigerator, stove, laundry in-suite, washer and dryer) the monthly rent you will be paying includes all this and they will be taken care of as soon as you pay your rent.

      Everything in this unit is functional and in good working conditions. Once you started staying in the unit and there is any case of any repairs which is as a result of normal faults like leakages, you will get in touch with me and i will get it fixed, i am in possession of the keys to the apartment which makes hard for you to view the unit. You can move into the unit when you receive the keys but the only problem is that am the only person who has the keys but i hope that we will be able to reach a compromise on this.

      The lease is month to month , 6 month or 1yrs and can be renewed ~It can be rented furnished or unfurnished ~ You will have to take good care of my unit Utilities are included in the rent ~Pets Allowed Any further questions please contact and get back to me for the pics of the unit and the application form. Thank you for your interest and i`m awaiting your response.

      Get back to me for the application form and the interior decoration pics.

  25. Hi, was anyone scammed by someone named Shopunicornz (initially) on Instagram who was selling inspired Litas?

    She later changed her instagram name to _PrincessFashion.

    She has deleted her account (or changed the name), and has not been replying to the texts of many girls. Also found out that she's called Amy Natasha on Facebook.

    Some of the scammed are making a police report! If you're one of them, pls do make a police report too! Its a small amount of money but no way is she going to escape scoot-free if she has committed fraud. Do beware!

  26. I want to report an online shop : Kachfashion ( On 13 October 2012. I made payment to KACH Enterprise (PG0221642-W), an online clothing shop in Malaysia. They didn't contact me even after payment was received until I inquired about my purchase 8 days later. Finally, after 15 days or so after they had received my payment, they sent me a torn garment! Upon complaining to them. I was told to send the dress back to the company within 7 days from 5 Nov 2012 if I wanted a refund. Pos Laju delivered the dress back to them on 6 Nov. 2012 but to date (24 Nov), I have yet to receive a refund. Kachfashion has ignored all my emails, Twitter & Facebook messages. The company also deleted my online account so I can't trace my order! They have also deleted all my public messages on their Facebook page inquiring about my refund. The phone number listed in one of their advertisements is also a wrong number. I have proof of all email correspondences with the company. Beware of shopping at Kachfashion! I have reported the company to all the relevant authorities in Malaysia.

  30. I like to bring to everyone attention if you are thinking of making a career change to a wedding planner, there is currently a scam in town call the "DoWed" ( they are engage as wedding planner to help newly wed couple in their wedding.

    They also conduct course on wedding planner under the name "DoWed Academy", and the owner is Sherwin Lee the scamer at large. The fees he charges are high S$2600, in which he promise there will be a employment after completing the course, which he also make everyone of his students sign the employment letter, the course become a scam on the very first day we all started, to my surprise, there were no sales kit given as promise, instead he give us someone else wedding planner sales kits which to me is totally unethical to begin with. This is the wedding planner program we receive from him:, and it is really unbelievable, a professional wedding planner company does not have their own wedding package, they use a link that belongs to another company.

    He is always giving excuses on a last minutes basic and reason to cancelled the classes, and his reasons are like ... my dog is sick, he is sick but when you see the things he uploaded to his facebook the activity he didn't look sick but very well and alive and drinking like a horse ..., other reasons, he give was office air-condition not working, office under renovation, meeting etc but he seem to have a lot of his time having long holidays trip to Japan and America. i believe the expense of his long and very expensive holiday trip are all from the course fees we all paid and not deliver.

    We all start the course last year, May 2012, and there is suppose to have an exam in Nov 2012, because he cancelled almost of the classes therefore, we can no longer is able to follow the timetable as set by him.

    He also promise that the class will be given a lists of listing for us to start with, which he also conveniently brush us aside saying that we do not deserve to be given because we are not committed. and he took the listing that belong to us and when away to work on it, what a scam!!!!

    Then he when on a super long holiday in the States without completely the course with us and this trip was make in early 2013, when he return, we question him about not being able to deliver what we pay for and promise, and to our surprise, he told us that there is nothing to learn from him and so the class just ended with out an examination ... what a scam!!!!!

    He took everyone for a ride in the up most unethical way to earn a living, lies after lies he has been telling and putting the blame on us for his self fish gains .... We are all at a lost as to what should we do with a man scam like this. But I believe we are not the only one, I did a check and found our that they were other victim in his earlier courses too ... sigh!

    He will be conducting another scam class soon by DoWed Academy in July 2013, I believe, that money that he is working toward is to up keep his high life and expensive lifestyle on the expense of the innocent people. I hope people who are like us thinking of making a career switch and want to spend our hard earn money on the right investment, just be very very aware about this company call "DoWed" and the owner is Sherwin Lee.

    Lastly, do spread the word around, S$2600 is not a lot of money to him but is a lot and lot of money to many of us. Even about to be wed couple, please stay far, far away from him and this company, trust me you will not be paying and getting what you want.

    1. Does anyone know the outcome of this issue?
      What happen to Sherwin Lee as was unable to contact him or email?

  31. This kind of scam are so comment in Singapore lately, everyone seem to be operating a academy which is either not listed or a total scam, in your case, it is a total scam! you should go to the ministry of manpower to see if they have any right to make you sign a letter of employment when you are paying good money and being use as a slave for free labor service!!! even go to small claim and sue them for a refund! I believe you have a strong case, don't let this idiot scam on other innocent victim.

  32. I am not sure if this is news worthy, ...
    u may like to investigate into this particular product: Purtier Placenta by Riway International.
    it cost like $600 per box of 2 bottles of 30 capsule each. recommended dosage of 2 per day. ..

  33. Would like to share, an advert in Gumtree Selling S4 phones, Title New Samsung galaxy s4 16gb / Ad ID 483825838. This is cheater!! He communicates thru Whatsapp 81225366. He will asked you to do a money transfer to a POSB acc but nothing will be delivered. He will whatsapp you again to claim that the item is stuck at ICA and need you to do further transfer aga. Already reported to police and is still waiting for further help. The advert is still alive in Gumtree as of 20 May 13. BEWARE and report to police immediately to make the case stronger so that the police can act.

  34. Followup on the Samsung S4 online fraud in the gumtree, His tel number listed as 81225366, and he com thru WhatsApp, the saddest thing for the victim beside being cheated are his hard earn money gain while working as waiter during school vacation, The victim being a naive student thought that he had strike a good deal but ended up nothing. Seeing his hard earn cash disappear is very cruel. The online cheater are criminals and thrash, If I am their parent, I will be ashamed. The impacts drawn on the innocent victims are far and wide. They have no trust in this society with such scams around. The cheater as we may called them, may think that they can slip thru the long arm of the law. But as parents, we will go all the way out to seek justice. Beside reporting to the police, we will seek legal advice and get the lawyer to demand action from the police. Even to the very last drop, and if the money is able to claim back, donating to charity will certainly made us feel better than giving it to these cheaters. I would like request whoever get cheated by this Samsung S4 online fraud to report to the police. There are free legal consultation from Safra and the CC to begin with. Lets send the message to this guy that he or she can never outrun the law and he or she will be dealed with by the law.

  37. I was browsing to help my friend and saw this website. My friend has be scammed by an incident similar as the one I saw here (the"Jacky Lee" incident). She added my friend on FB and later on skype for web cam chat which ended up recording video of my friend. Now she is extorting my friend with his video. She even sent him a list of people she is going to send the video to to his FB friends. Right now, only his girlfriend has received the video through FB private message. My friend has already reported to the police.
    The girl was called "Kim Hong Chi". Her FB profile seems normal and stated that she is from Taiwan university.

    1. Hi,

      This is to add on to what happened after this incident that I have commented before: (I was browsing to help my friend and saw this website. My friend has be scammed by an incident similar as the one I saw here (the"Jacky Lee" incident). She added my friend on FB and later on skype for web cam chat which ended up recording video of my friend. Now she is extorting my friend with his video.

My friend has already reported to the police.
      The girl was called "Kim Hong Chi". Her FB profile seems normal and stated that she is from Taiwan university.)

      No news from the "kim hong chi" after my friend deactivates his FB.
      So he reactivates it the past few days ago. Today, there's a girl by the name named " Grace Leong" ( that goes around adding people (which includes myself) from my friend's FB account. Looking at her account which is just created a few days ago, i found it suspicious. This Grace Leong looks quite similar to Kim Hong Chi-sweet looking and wearing low cut top. I alerted my friend and he deactivates his FB once again.

Luckily i trust my heart and decided to google it and i found this website that reveals this room ad is a scam. Thankfully i didnt transact any money but im worried because i gave him my passport details. Any advice on how to at least inform relevant parties should he decided to use my passport details for any future purposes?

    7. I just get tricked these few days and lost quite amount. Using all the same email format just different name.
      Lets we all gather to make a police report to prevent this scam to happen again in the future, bring all the documents as prove.
      Because as I know he still active using cheating people around.
      Whatever the result is at least we do something and try.
      Hope he gets what he did, karma will get him.
      And I hope to hear from you guys soon too.

    8. Thank you, I almost got scammed too by a guy called chew soon kwong , please be aware.

  45. My experience would be different from you all, as I'm a seller scammed by a buyer. I'm a seller of virtual in-game goods. I am a victim of a reverse payment scam where the buyer allegedly sent the payment through TT from singapore to malaysia and send me the screenshot of the transaction. Trusting DBS bank and the buyer, i sent the requested items. Sadly, the buyer disappeared from contact till now. apparently, after sending the screenshot, he went on and cancel the payment or report it as a mistake.He now has the money and the stuff i sent. im only a stident and the money he scammed me was a lot. all i have is the screenshot of the transaction with his DBS acc number. Can anyone advise me please?

  46. Its really very shock. People can create official mail id. Eg: , , ...
    Scammers sending the mail from those id . Telling about some money transaction.
    Any one give some advice to public scammers creating this fake email.
    This mails from official web will really make people confuse

  47. Hi guys,


    There's this guy on Locanto posting about Samsung s4, and his email is "". Stating that per set of the phone is SGD 400 and we have to have a local (Singapore) bank transfer to posb savings account as follows:

    POSB Bank
    Acct No: 158-196727
    Account type: Savings
    Account Name: Foo Hee Chew Francis

    After I made a payment of SGD value of $400, he told me that my phone is ready to be shipped. But I need to pay SGD value of $210 for VAT. I refused to pay and requested for immediate refund as he did not mention anything about VAT until I made the first payment. He then ask me to pay for 5 units so it will be more worth because shipping 5 units will be cheaper as be it shipment of 1 unit or 5 units VAT will be $210. I was reluctant to pay and thus he said that he will pay on behalf of me to the courier and "told his boss that that amount will be deducted from his salary". And told me I will receive my item next day 4pm latest. I asked for a tracking number, for couple of hours he refuse to reply me. And when he finally does, he reprimanded me of not letting him sleep "because it is midnight at US now & the courier guy phone is off, he should be sleeping too". So after another couple hours, he text me again, saying that courier is not possible to ship 1 item, and I have to buy 4 more units in order for me to receive item tomorrow. I demanded again for refund, he told me it is not possible because "their accountant is oversea right now in Australia", and either I pay for 4 more sets or I have to wait for him to get another buyer (which is like a ??? timing, because who knows which idiot like me will fall on same trick?) to purchase and then can ship out orders together.

    I told him to do an immediate refund and he said that the account holder name is a FBI and even police can't do anything to him. He then mock at me stating that the account holder name will not be back in Singapore for the next 20 years because he gotten a job oversea for 10 years contract. He gave me info as such:

    License number: 2555491011222
    Name: Cele Bulk Stores
    Address: Liberty Road Salem Oregon
    State: Salem
    City: Oregon
    Country: USA
    Zip code: 97304

    Also he told me his shop is under one of the reported complaint shop call "shop safe store" and they are partners. I believe both company are operated by the same guy I spoke to, and they are scams. He even dare me to go ahead and post review or complaint about him, or even to the authorities as I wish because "police can't so anything to them".

    Please be careful if anyone is searching information about this store "Cele Bulk Store" or "shop safe store" or "shoprite". There is no "cheap" phones online, even if payment method is by local bank transfer, and definitely not any wire money (western union, moneygrammers etc) all hand phone scams through these methods are all scams and they refuse to accept payment by PayPal because we can revert Paypal charges within 30 days.

    1. I have been scam by a company call Smart Mobile Solution Ltd exactly using the same tricks. It was really foolish of me and I remitted a total if $1210 to a local POSB SAVING account in Singapore. and I get nothing. I have made a police report and hoping that something can be done. And there was also this person going by Michelle Wong Gadgets be wary of this also!

    2. I got similarly scammed by Smart Mobile Solutions last month and filed a police report, and reported the account to DBS. Seems like there are a ton of fake POSB accounts.

      I also felt like an idiot, but luckily only transferred the first amount and refused to make a second payment. I cannot believe they have a valid phone number and bank account, yet nothing can be done to stop them.

  51. RBMS PTE Company is a Scammer Too..... Representative is someone called Kira aware........they never sent the products and NO refund!!!!!!!!!

  52. Hi,
    My wife was cheated from this site as she believe it was authentic tory burch:

    Please do not order from here. We lodged a complaint with Visa and DBS, but they do not care, and said they cannot reverse the payment, or stop any future payments to the merchant. Shocking!!!!

  53. Muhammad Faraz Ahmad (Pakistani) claimed to be relocating from Singapore to Australia and thus needed to sell his online business that was purportedly running for the past one year. He forged prior three month sales transaction records to "prove" his monthly revenue. Upon payment and given the admin password, we discovered that the website was created and registered only a couple of weeks before we met.
    We notified him of all the discrepancies including information which he provided on the day of handover.
    As the premise of buying the business was based on deception, we requested that he returned the money paid for the business. He refused.

    We're sharing this experience and hope that other will learn to be more careful of the many modus operandi of fraudsters in Singapore

  54. Does the police will really do anything if we report this scamming case?

  65. Everyone please beware of this Scammer Fabian Y. I got scammed by him about SG$50000. His full name is Fabian Yue Ming Qiu 30 year old this year. Description on how i got scammed by him below.

    In October 2012, I get to know Fabian in tagged and was in a relationship with him on 22nd October 2012. Starting he will present himself as a very rich man. Saying that he drive a Evolution but his driving got suspended due to traffic offence. And he owned a condo in East Coast area and he will tell you his money is your money and your money is his money. As a couple have to help each other if anyone of us met in any difficulties. So the scam start here. I do go to his house and stay with him before. He stay at Blk 41 Cambridge Road that time as he said his dad just pass away due to Cancer and his parent divorced when he was young. So he have to look after the house as they rented the room out but the rental is all collected by his aunt which is his dad sister. He also said that his mum is a big lawyer and he was being force to study psychology in NUS/NTU and transfer to private University.

  66. About a month later when i'm with him, he started his scam tactics. He said that he had been working as a illegal gambling bookie for about 10years since he's young and he got very sick and tired of doing illegal job. But he's unable to quit his job if he did not pay his boss a $10000. At that point of time as a girlfriend of cause i'll support him to quit his job before getting caught. Than he said he had already managed to borrow a $7000 from his friend and still shortage of $3000 and also he said that after quitting this bookie job he gonna start his own business to assemble server for LAN Shop. He ask me whether can i help him out but for a person like me do not have any saving at all. He started to ask me to go and take bank loans. Starting when i rejected to help him to take loans he got very angry and ignore me. Loan are from three different banks OCBC (SG$3700), POSB (SG$4200) & Citibank (SG$3700). And he promised me that he will return me the money but i found out he use the money for soccer betting.

  67. When he started his business he said he had sign contract with his customer and there's a deadline to meet. So he had already order stock from his supplier some motherboards but when it arrived singapore he claim that all his stock were corroded cause of shipment by sea. So he need more money to re-order his stock. But I'm not allow to take anymore loan from the banks as all the bank first installment payment were not paid which he promised he will pay. So he force me to go to licensed moneylender. From 1 company become 16 licensed moneylender company. He also claimed that his Laptop breakdown need to buy a new laptop for his work so he again force me to courts to take up their flexiplan to be able to buy the MACBOOK PRO for him just a normal MACBOOK total cost is $6000 as it's installment plan.

  68. About half year later, with all the debts i'm bearing i was thinking to clear all the 16 licensed moneylender at one go. But his so called business is having problem again. So this time round he forced me to take loan from Loanshark! But i'm awake by that time as my friend are helping me to pay the licensed moneylender loan. I told him straight to his face that i'm unable to help him anymore especially take loan from LOANSHARK! So our relationship turn sour and when he know that i'm not going to help him he broke off with me.

    So on August 2013, I discuss with him the payment and he promised to pay me every end of month a $400 for banks loan and on every 12th of the month a $125 for Courts Flexiplan Installment. For the first four months he had done what he had promised. But he start to come out with lots of excuses like he have a job but required him to own a car so he brought a car under his friend name and he did not pay for the monthly installment for few months already so he only able to pay me a $100 that month end. Than another month came he said he met on a bike accident and was hospitalized with his left hand being amputed and out of goodwill i told him since his hand is like this he don't need to pay the monthly installment till another month than he pay. And this month, when i ask him for payment again he said his Girlfriend is pregnant with his kids so he won't bother about the payment. But too bad i won't believe in his lies. For all your inform two day ago before he said his girlfriend was pregnant he told me he don't think he have a girlfriend.

  69. Anyway cause of my kindness he take everything for granted and i found out he actually ENJOYING with his new Girlfriend which is just 20year old girl this year with his both hand still intact and not useless at all. He even put on braces. This scammer have the money to put on braces but do not have the money to return me. He even claimed that the braces were sponsor by his previous employer.

    Everyone please take note i had also found out i'm not the only victims as there are many more people got scammed by him even his own childhood friends. If there's anyone who got scammed by him kindly reply me through this website. Let justice handle him as the amount he had scammed is not a small amount everyone got scammed by him the least is also 10k.

    1. Hi, your scam case seemed similar as mine and i have found out other victims who got scammed by the same guy. Are you very sure that his full name is Fabian Yue Ming Qiu by NRIC?

    2. Hi,

      His NRIC Name is either Fabian Yue Ming Qiu or Yue Ming Qiu only.. I have to check.. when do you and other victims got scam by him? and do you and other victims launch a police report? Anyway, he had pay me monthly a $100 plus $125 for the courts laptop.. But you all have to report him to police let's justice handle him.. don't let him scot-free. His GF/Wife got pregnant is none of our business too.. he can come out with lots of story when come to payment.. i'm too sick and tired of hearing his story and excuse..

  70. Hi

    1. Hello, you there can u reply me? Got something to ask u

    2. Hi any updates of your case ?

  71. Beware of TWO SCAM SITES:

    I found this two links on Facebook. They advertised FREE trials to try their products but you have to pay for shipping fees and had to enter your credit card details. HUGE MISTAKE! Never enter your credit card details unsecured unless it is through PayPal. They have deducted a few hundreds dollars from my savings account without my knowledge!

  72. BEWARE of this SCAM website:

    I found this through ST Classified ad and they have a few ad with ST Classified. I have already report to ST Classified to blacklist all their ad so more victim will fall into their trap like me been scam $2800.. all my 1 mth hard earn salary just gone down the drain with it..

    Have made a police report but zero hope to recovery back..

    I was so stupid in believing what they say and since i thought is a local website with local bank POSB account.. that i end up transfer more and more money over.. ended up all more hard earn money gone.. no items delivery ..
    please warn all your love one or friends who like buy gadgets online

    1. I was cheated by this website too. For me, I was cheated half the amount what you've given.
      They told me that the courier service ended up carrying 4 items tobe deliver to my house instead of 2 items that I've requested. They asking to pay for the whole 4 items and then return back the goods tomorrow and refund will be given back to me. When they asked me to do more transfer, I got suspicious and told them I've got no more money. They even told me to borrow money from friend to settle this problem.

      So I asked them if this a scam company, they even reply me that I dont have to worry . They are not a scam company. So,I told them I would like to cancel the transaction since I can not afford to make the additional payment and ask to refund me back the money. I believe them when they told me that they will cancel the transaction and refund me back the money.

      But my bro in law told me it was a scam and managed to find my way to this website and read your story. Now I'm confirmed has been cheated too.

      Have you receive your money back since you make a police report ?

  73. Do not be scammed ny this Company called Garcinium and Supracleanse 350. They offer free trial of their products but pay for shipping. Then 2 weeks later they will charge your credit card without your consent and acknowledgement.
    No products received and no reply from them.
    Beware as their order is linked together with the big names like GNC, some celebrities etc.

  74. @ locanto. Offering cheap mobile phones and apple products. FAKE. I got cheated of $250. Delivery was promised 3-4 hrs after delivery but after transfer he remained silent. Then 3 hours later, he replied via whatsapp that "his boss did not allow you to get te package at half payment". He wanted another $250 for "tax and insurance". And refundable. ‪83191956

    1. do u manage to get back you money

  75. Hey. Was being scammed about $500++ but then reported police and it doesn't seems they are doing anything about it? How :( and also my friend was being scammed like an small amt, do you think the police will entertain her? :((((((

    1. Even if you think the police won't entertain you all, you must also make a police report. At least police have a record of this cheater. Who knows this cheater cheat on others and others had already reported to the police. When more people make the police report, it will alert the police and hopefully they will take action on these cheaters especially that cheater who cheat me. My case is below, S$650.

    2. The police did not even entertain a group scam report of total amount est $380,000. I'm starting to think what is the police doing..

  76. Hi all, thanks for sharing your stories. Please report to police about your scam/
    cheating case. I encounter a cheating case (S $650) recently and had reported to the police. I think police wont be able to help us to get out money back or get that cheater arrested. They will close these cases after a certain period by give certain excuses. These cheaters fully understand what sg police will do. They will not get caught and still able to continue to cheat others money. I pray hard on karma to that guy who cheat my money.

  77. Dear All
    This is a true story for which conclusion is yet to come. Three family put advt on Gumtree seeking flat on rent. In response one HDB owner from tampines contacted potential tenants and has given his own flat on rent to different person including me almost at same time in period of one month. On last minute he canceled the deal with everyone with one reason or another and holds back most of good faith advance given to him(one month rent and one month deposit). Till now I have four cases in my knowledge with whom he has done it. He keep on making some excuse not to return money. He is still contacting potential tenants.

    Three victims has filed the police report. Police has asked us to seek SCT help. We all three went to SCT and SCT has ordered him to return the money back in two cases.
    From my limited knowledge of local law, as part of enforcement of order only movable property can be seized for which we are not aware what are his movable properties are. I request my all fellow stompers to be aware and cautious in such case. It was our hard earned money for which we are still exploring all possible avenue to get it back. Money is just one part in such case but kind of frustration and mental trauma ( feeling to get cheated) is another part.

    I have full faith in Singapore system.
    I am confident we will get justice though it demands lot of efforts and time. Please be safe. Let's all together make Singapore safest place on earth. ( Please remember lowest crime does not mean no crime hence take all pre-caution and inform the relevant authorities at earliest)

  78. Hi,
    Thanks for sharing important view and thoughts in this article.i really appreciate !!!!!!

  79. I've recently encountered what seems to be a case of scam on the online platform carousell. I would like to enquire about the outlet to proceed to when this case of scam only involves $27 for me, but many of the users on that platform have actually been scammed by this one member there.

  80. hi..i saw a post on, there's student promotion in singapore and malaysia which will end this May. anyone heard of it?? the account name they gave to pay for the iphone is Nyaguty Sandra Tibaga.. is this a scammer??? please reply. thanks.



    UEN: 201412536E

    NBO SINGAPORE IS DOING MLM SCAM, WHY? THEY SETUP TO GET MONIES TO PEOPLE in Singapore and these Company will incurred a huge LIABILITIES and later on , they will LIQUIDATE. and they are Filipinos.

    Heres the Technical Plan:NO SELL, NO RECRUIT PLAN (even they have a product)
    A (YOU) , B (YOU) C(YOU)
    registration is 988 each x 3 = 2964
    IF A have 2 downline , they called it ACTIVE SLOT
    This is their payout and investment scam scheme
    2964 1 3 1 4,500.00 1,423.00 3,077.00
    6916 2 7 3 13,500.00 4,269.00 9,231.00
    14820 3 15 7 31,500.00 9,961.00 21,539.00
    30628 4 31 15 67,500.00 21,345.00 46,155.00
    62244 5 63 31 139,500.00 44,113.00 95,387.00
    125476 6 127 63 283,500.00 89,649.00 193,851.00
    251940 7 255 127 571,500.00 180,721.00 390,779.00

    THE COMPANY has no Paid Up capital to run and pay the investor. they use all registration and members fee which is AGAINST THE MLM ACT OF SINGAPORE and other International Countries.
    Each Active slot will ACCUMULATE to 4500 to complete distribution but in fact. This distribution doesnt exist. They just simplified just to show the people that they receiving money online little by little. If the money meter reach the amount of 4500. The company will deduct 1423 (cmpany income) then the balance of 3077 will give to 1 investor who register on queue by date and time.

    Lets assume IF YOU invest 255 slot x 988 each =251,940 or sgd equivalent
    The company CANT PROVIDE 571,500 each of 127 Active slot because the cash sales is only 251,940.00
    Instead, The company will pay only 20% of ACTIVE slot( 51 active slot) out of 127 Active binary.
    IT MEANS the 77 active slot is UNPAID. Remember each Active slot company earn 1423.00 or sgd equivalent. (1423x51=72,573.00)
    How to pay the outstanding payable of 77 active slot(77x4500=346,500). ?
    They must GET 1.37% additional slot -NEW INVESTOR VICTIM (352slot) to pay the remaining balance.

    Therefore, they will encourage and find new victims in singpaore until the get 350slot (new investor) = 175 Active slot( Payable again)
    350slotx 988=347,776.00 to pay the 77 active slot 346,500.
    NOW THE COMPANY TOTAL LIABILITIES = 175 active slot which is equivalent to 787,500.00 OR sgd equivalent.

    Until all people in the end, they dont pay and PLAN TO LIQUIDATE the company.
    THERES NO COMPANY are willing to EARN less income and incurred HUGE LIABILITIES.




  82. ***DBGadgetStore online selling new handphones cheap -> CHEATS ***

    Their modus operandi:
    Where they advertise online: Locanto, Gumtree at least those I know.
    What they sell: new handphones
    "Attraction': Buy 2 Get 1 free, or cheap & quite unbelievable price
    They make you believe they are locals by willingly sending you scan image of their Singapore ICs, but I don't think the ICs belong to them.
    Payment mode: Direct bank transfer (one of the methods) to OCBC, DBS, UOB - up to you to choose
    Selling method: pay first, then deliver -> PROBLEM starts here!!!

    Once you pay, they will ask you to top up with a few hundred dollars of insurance money, else they will not deliver.

    How to verify if they are real: ask to meet them face-to-face or go to their office, see goods, then pay cash on the spot. If they are not willing to meet, they are HOAX!

    I have been cheated near to a thousand dollars with their selling approach above.

    ADVICE: NEVER PART WITH YOUR MONEY WITHOUT SEEING THE GOODS for this company. They are money suckers. So, don't be a sucker and fall prey to them!

  83. I've encountered a online cheating/ scam, Saw a online ad of selling phone. Contact seller through email and then whatsapp. Agree to buy the phone and he send me a copy of the front NRIC as assurance and say will deliver the phone within 2 to 3 hours.

    About time, i whatsapp the contact, he said had an issue in the delivery will take more time but nothing come. A long wait..........whatsapp him again no reply. Went MIA. His whatsapp last seen is still active. (Last seen 11:51pm, 3/07/14)

    I've reported this case to the police, they told me if this is a serial case they will investigate more deeply. Told me to go for small claims tribunal, not sure should i, as it will be troublesome.

    Just a student, $700 just gone like that.

PM him and was told to transfer $250 for him as deposit and he will come over to meet me and pay balance, once paid to posb saving acconts 130-69668-6, he say to transfer another $250 so he don't have to carry so much cash around for rest of delivery, then he will say pay another $150 for tax and insurance. sense something not right but money already gone. handphone is 94222285, IC : S8618225D, DOB 9 July 1986, Add: Blk 333 Serangoon Ave 3, #xx-xxx. I'm not sure if this IC or FB account is stolen identity but beware...reported to police and got a case number. Hope police take actions against such scammers. Lucky for me "no real money was transacted" as I smell a fish when a deals is too good to be real and seller ask for fund transfer first before seeing goods. CRAPS!!!

  85. sigh wished i came across this site earlier. just reported a police case with "dbgadgetstore", saw their ad on gumtree - offering phones at a cheap price. ultimate bullshit. I got cheated of $380 for a note 3. delivery was supposed to be done in an hour (1140am), but apparently errors with delivery side kept coming up. then they promised delivery before 1pm, still nothing. received an invoice from them, and wanted another $220 for "100% refundable tax and insurance" upon delivery of item in cash. spam text for hours and at 4pm, replied me with a "wait". start spamming for a response again and i was blocked on whatsapp by 8pm. bloody hell, had to visit the police and bank and praying hard i would be able to recover my money..

    1. Hey i was scammed by the same person too :/ i wasted $360 for a note 3, they told me 11 sets of phones were mailed to my house and asked for more money. In the end, nothing came. I'm still a student so $360 is a lot to me and fearing my parents will find out, i didn't report to the police

  86. A friend of mine was scammed online by a woman who befriended him. She then invited him for a webcam session. She recorded him and started blackmailing him for money. We didn't go to the police fearing a backlash. But we have her name and the address we sent the money to.

  87. Just beware of people claiming they are from another country wanting you to mail item to another country.

    Just wasted my time by this scammer Daniel who claimed to be in US and interested to buy a branded bag from me and have it ship to his "wife" in Malaysia.
    Asked me if i prefer bank transfer or paypal. Even tried a little bargaining on postage costs. I told him to secure the purchase from my ebay post, but he said he don't have an ebay account...well a odd sign.

    When i said bank transfer preferred, he sent a fake-looking bank transfer confirmation the next day, claiming it's from Colony Bank and asked me to provide shipment verification before the funds will be sent to me per bank normal procedure...
    The fake bank confirmation email is sent from an email address
    At first, the email was in my other email folder so I told him I didn't receive the bank confirmation email. Then, wah immediately he checked and resent the confirmation (he own the bank or what haha). He asked me to mail the item to
    Name : Stephanie Anthony
    Address : 5-2,Vista Millennium Condo,Bandar Puteri,47100 PUCHONG, SELANGOR
    City : Kualar Lumpur
    Country : Malaysia

    The address doesn't even look right...those who live in Singapore or Malaysia will know why.
    I read online that these scammers also designed fake paypal email confirmations too.

    Not difficult to identify the scam...but really a waste to time!!!!

  88. Hi to all,

    Please beware of this fake buyer details as below;

    Email address :
    Name : Daniel
    Bank account : Standard Chartered (SG)

    Story starts here;

    I received an email from who was interested to buy a bag which I posted for sale online

    We made a deal through our email conversation for this price of the bag. The buyer agreed to transfer the payment to my Paypal account (as he is in USA not a local buyer so I deal with Paypal) however the money will be put on hold first until I show them proof of a delivery shipping numbers.

    I made a Singpost delivery to this person in Malaysia and forward the shipping numbers to the buyer.

    I received an email from Paypal stating that my account is not a USA authorized internationally. As such a refundable activation fee of $650/- needs to be made to a local standard chartered account. Upon confirmation of the activation fee, I will be refunded $650/- plus the payment amount of the bag from the sales. As such, I made the transfer.

    I again received another email from Paypal requesting for another $1220/- to be transferred as there were other problem. I then sensed something amiss and immediately called to suspend the delivery of the item to Malaysia. Immediately, I emailed Paypal to clarify upon the activation fee matters and they replied there is no such thing. I also called the bank to stop the transfer however they are unable to do so and advised me to lodge a police report before they can initiate an investigation.

    Lastly, have made police report and waiting for the police to contact me.

    Bad luck!!!

  90. I was cheated by this unscrupulous woman by in 2011, and apparently she's still actively scamming people, esp mums looking to buy clothes or toys for their kids! She usually sells on craigslist or gumtree Singapore.

    I wrote this blog to compile her deeds


  92. New scam using kitchenware targeting housewives. The product is "Platinum Prado". This is their website and product

  93. Dear friends, I have been cheated by a guy named ROY whom I thought could be trusted. Two years ago, I met him in Facebook and we chatted for a few times. He tried asking me to be his girlfriend but I declined and so he said its ok he will treat me as his younger sister instead.
    Then one day, he asked me to be his guarantor to sign up for a plan in M1. At first, I did not agree and rejected his favor thrice but he kept begging me telling me that I am the only one who can help him sign a new line because both his parents’ names, his wife’s name and his own name has been blacklisted in all three mobile operators (Singtel, M1 and Starhub) and they cannot sign up for a new line anymore. He also said that he was homeless and have to sleep at the park now because he was thrown out of the house by his parents for not paying the electricity and water bills for their home. After hearing his story, I thought what he said sounded real. He also said that he promised to pay all the bills and so I signed up the line for him. Yes, I only agreed to sign up the line because he said he will pay for all the bills not only because I was cheated by his “story-telling”.

  94. continue.....

    He paid for the first bill on time and even brought me out twice with his wife named F. Until, when the second bill came and I was shocked to see the amount stating $200++ and I received the very first lawyer letter sent from M1 demanding payment from me. I immediately contacted him asking him what did he do that bill is like a bomb! He said give him more time because his boss has not given him his salary yet; and so I decided to wait. However, little did I know what he said was just to patronize me. The second bill came along with the second lawyer letter from M1 again and this time stating the bill amounting at $400++! I was really really shocked! I could not believe the amount I saw on the letter. I called him and told him off in the phone and there he goes with all excuses again. This time, he said that his wife has been hospitalized and he has used all his money on her hospital bills. Please give him more time, he promised that he will pay the bill when he receives his next salary. I was stupid enough to believe him again and so I continued to wait.

  95. continue last part....

    Then, the third time the bill came along with the lawyer’s letter as usual. This time the amount went all the way up to $800++. My mom and I were really furious and so we went to a M1 shop to ask for further enquiries about the bill. All M1 said was they could do nothing and if we want to make a police report, we could. So, my mom and I went to the police station to make a report. I told the police officer that I have a photo of that idiot guy but the officer just told me to show it to the IO when he/she wants to talk to me so after that I waited patiently. I thought this could be my chance to get that idiot guy to make his payment but it was a huge disappointment.
    A few weeks later, I received a letter from the police stating that due to insufficient evidence, they cannot do anything and FIND NO CHARGES AGAINST THAT GUY and so they cannot proceed any further investigation. However, that doesn’t give me the right to do what I want. How can there be no charges?? After reading that letter, I thought all hope was lost and I almost went into depression.
    I contacted that guy calling him a cheater and demanded immediate payment and he came up with all sorts of excuses as usual and this time even shouted back at me and accused me of cheating his money too which I did not. He wanted to treat me willingly I did not force him or even asked him to get anything for me at all!
    After the huge quarrel we had, he stopped contacting me.
    I went to call M1 to have the account immediately frozen. Since the account is frozen and I cannot contact him anymore, I decided to call his wife to ask for payment but she has also changed her phone number so I cannot find any ways to ask him for the payment. I could not do anything for a few months until one day I realized that I have F’s (Roy’s wife) Facebook account. I saw two posts that she posted, one about the anniversary present he bought for her and the other one about buying a new phone. HE GOT THE MONEY TO BUY BRANDED STUFF AND HANDPHONE AND GO OVERSEAS WITH HIS WIFE, CANNOT MAKE THE PAYMENT FOR PHONE BILL. WHAT A JOKE.
    So, last Thursday, I received the FOURTH lawyer letter from M1 demanding for the payment of $800++ AGAIN. I took a photo of the letter and Facebook message the photo to his wife, kindly asked her to tell Roy to make the payment as it has already been a very very very long time since he has done so. However, she saw the message I sent and did not bother replying. I sent her a second message on Facebook this afternoon again and she did not reply too.
    I have no means to pay such a huge amount of money as I am from a not so wealthy family. My mom is suffering from cancer but still has to work to pay for her medicines and hospital fee, my sister is actually working too but have to give up her job to take care of my mom because recently her condition worsened. My dad is not on good terms with us and I am a full time student and am not working because my mom wants me to focus on my studies so where can I find so much money? Unless, I quit school to work then I can get the money but my mom won’t allow me.
    I am too naïve and foolish and am embarrassed to say that I made friends with the wrong person and also trusted him too easily. I have learnt my lesson not to trust people too easily, especially with money. I will never commit the same mistake ever again. Once bitten, twice shy.
    Please help me keep a look out for ROY. He lives around Toa Payoh and if you do see him, please ask him to contact me or Singtel to clear the debt. I will be forever grateful for your kindness and understanding.

  96. I have received 2 SMSes from my girlfriend asking me why i need to buy iTunes Credit urgently. After clarification, I was shocked to know that she had received an SMS from me through the LINE chat on the request! I have not used LINE chat for over 6months and have deleted the App from my mobile phone. Lucky she clarified with me or else, $$$ gone!!!!

    I search about this and i found out its really PYRAMIDING SCAM/PONZI. Example: You buy the product $1,085sgd, You will earn $1,650sgd. Their complan is payout is only base on -re entry of the members or they called it re-purchase.
    This kind of system will incurred the more re-entry, the more MEMBERS will SUFFER. This must be stop!!!!! More people will suffer. example: 10 members join. 2 member will payout. and the remaining 8 will unpaid. In Financial Statement , Their balance sheet shows All Liabilities of people it means, Deficit FS, How they will file in ACRA?. Anyone who can call the Consumers Association of Singapore (CASE) or any DSA agency or police. This must be STOP BEFORE THEY SCAM OUR SINGAPOREAN PEOPLE

  101. Avoid TomToce ( at all cost.

    I placed the order on on 1 September.

    I was given a tracking number, and was told that carrier was com1express. After about a week later, it shows up on com1express website that the package was delivered, but I did not receive it. I called up com1express and gave them the tracking number, and they said that that tracking number does not belong to me/my address.

    I managed to contact TomToce online on 10 Sept with much effort and they said that they have not shipped yet but that they have just shipped it on 10 Sept. After waiting for another 9 more days, I still have not received the order.

    And again, with a lot of effort, I contacted TomToce online again on 19 Sept. Again, they said that they have just shipped my order and that it's on its way. I insisted for a tracking number this time, and they gave me a tracking number. When I check the com1express website for the new tracking number, it is invalid.

  102. Hi, i do not know whether is this blog is still in use but i need advise on how to go about to get back my money from this ex-boyfriend who cheated approximately S$10,000 from me. I've all bank statements to show the transactions down and the message of which he indicated he wants to return and when i asked for a lump sum, he decided not to return and involved his mother who of course, sided her own son. He took my money and refused to return no matter how i tried to talk nicely to him. He cheated on me with another girl too.

    1. What you have written sounds like you wants to get the money back because he cheated on you with another girl. Perhaps you can ask him to pay you back in instalments and not lump sum? If he has that kind of money lying around, he wouldn't have to borrow from you in the first place.

      Hopefully you can get your money back.

  103. Beware of this company "NJ Enterprise" the guy claims he's from a reputable company and will easily fool you.. checked ACRA website the company is already cancelled.. don't ever believe on him...he's selling lots of stuff in GUMTREE e.g ASICs Shoes, Acrylic Products&Sheets, Acrylic Fabrication, safety boots, desktop charger etc..

  107. Hi all,

    I just happened to provide my credit card account no. to open facebook free income online programme on the other day and now U$97 was debited from my credit card. It was informed by my bank.

But NO ONE pick it up my call and auto voice replied that 'our operators are busy, you may hold ..........................bla bla bla...'

  114. On 5th December 2014, 10.30pm, i think i almost got scammed.
    There was a phone call on my house line and the caller was a woman with heavy Indian accent. She told me she was from Windows Service Center, the Global server of service center. She then proceeded to tell my computer registration number has been stolen and pirated around. She have me her name, Sonia, and employee code, 9003, to ensure me that she was authentic.
    !!! (NOTE: i searched on the internet but i found out that Windows will never call you unless you contact them.) !!!
    Continuing, she told me to follow her step by step.
    1. Press the windows key along with the 'r' key. A small ru box will appear at the bottom.
    2. Type in assoc then press okay.
    3.A black box with codes will come out, then she ask me to type something in which i can't remember but after that she will ask you confirm with you your registration number: 888dca60-fc0a.......
    i hanged up after she made me open up something where you can see the active connections with established state or time out state or something. I'm not that good with this kind of stuff so i almost believed her.

    I have seen many comments on how people from India has been doing these scams and i think i should warn you guys before something happens to you too.
    I still don't know if the few things i did for her is safe and not doing anything weird to my computer.

  119. Hello
    I was scammed by a Singaporean man who's name is Deon Pang.

    We came into contact on a website and pretty soon we got bit more serious. He made me fall in love and then started to talk about a short time money problem.. he asked for 100 sgd. I was so stupid to send it to him on paypal. Email linked is after he recieved the money he said that he didn't get it and asked for more. I refused and then he stopped all contact.

    Everyone beware of Mr. Deon Pang

  120. I post anonymous as I'm very scared at the moment and the issue is very embarrassing. What happened?

    I was on an online adult website where I met a Singaporean who's name is Deon Pang (supposedly from ang mo kio area). He first made me compliments and once we were in touch he told me about a problem he has money whise. I was stupid enough to send 100 sgd to him on his paypal account linked to the email

    as soon he recieved it he refused further contact. the end I'm a victim of a scam. I tried to get back and also asked a friend who runs a company specialized in these kind of issues but so far nothing happened.

    The scam happened on November 14.

    The damage is small and the circumstances embarrassing.. but I fear this Deon Pang will continue to do this with other people.

    Everyone beware of this person!


  121. BEWARE of FRAUDULENT BUYER (not seller this time) from Gumtree

    One day, this fraudster emailed me to indicate his interest in buying an item which I was selling in Gumtree. However, he wants the item to be delivered to Thailand for his daughter who is staying there and he is from USA, therefore he wants me to mail the item directly to his daughter. He told me he can pay me via paypal or bank transfer. So I agreed to sell to him and gave him my bank account number for bank transfer (as I do not have paypal)

    Subsequently, an online transaction email of the money transfer was sent to me. However, the email stated the money will be on hold at Citibank side until I post the item and send them a scanned copy of postage receipt due to buyer/seller protection thing. Well, I believed that because it 'seems' reasonable, so I posted the item and emailed them (via reply button) my postage receipt. It's only after emailing them my receipt that I realized something is wrong, google about it and true enough it is a scam! which some forums and blogger wrote about it 2-3 years ago (exactly the same email format and content!!!) stupid of me for not checking it out thoroughly!

    Now I'm worried if they'll make use of my bank account number, my signature (that was on the postage receipt which I scanned and sent to them) and my address (I wrote a return mail address on my item - assuming that their add is valid and one of the frauder is staying there and received my package). Anyone can give me an advice on this?

    Below is the email which the frauder sent to me
    (PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF THEIR EMAIL FORMAT so you don't get scammed like me):

    Email 1:
    Hello i am Mr Peter Clement from United State Of America, how are
    you today and how are your families ? hope all is good ? well i am
    interested in buying the item for my daughter in THAILAND, because it
    my daughter that need it and i hope she would like it , so kindly get
    to me with the total cost of the item including the shipping cost to
    her address below with post office, i pay through either Paypal or
    Bank transfer ok reply soon.

  122. another email to confirm that it is fraud:
    Hello ,
    Thanks for the Shipment,
    Now i just received a notification from the bank about our transaction
    , Is it true that this is the first time you are receiving a money
    transfer from usa ??? your account is not yet activated ??? im not
    happy about this at all, because your account needs to be activated
    before you can take the transfer from Citi Bank Of America ,the bank
    has debited the account activations fees which is SGD-650 from my
    account ...

    Now your account is activated anyway , U only need to send back the
    SGD-650 through Bank Transfer to the provided Bank Information which i
    believe the bank should have sent to you by now and send the deposit
    receipt to the bank....

    The SGD-650 is just a form of verifications (As said by the bank) it
    will be credited back into your account with the SGD-35, so total you
    will get in your account after you have transfer the SGD650 via bank
    transfer and send the bank receipt and to the bank is
    SGD-650+SGD-35......Hope there is a DBS deposit Atm around, that you
    can quickly deposit the money into the Account.You can also make the
    transfer with Internet Banking if you have and you just send the
    Transfer Confirmation to Citibank.

    This is the Bank details below,the bank account is for my friend who
    own a Singapore Account.So kindly email me once you have Bank In the

    Account number-0330103325.
    Bank Name-DBS bank.
    Account name- Chee Puay
    savings account

  123. I am quite convinced that I've been scammed by the same scammer on crimewatch ):

    I paid for a phone via iBanking (stupid me... should have met up with him face-to-face) and he suddenly changed his "terms and conditions" saying i have to buy another phone before I can receive the one I bought.. Thankfully I suspected something and reported to the police before I was fooled into throwing more money away ): and of course, I never received the phone.

    He gave me a fake IC (at that time I thought it was real)
    and apparently, the police have recieved several reports about him... so beware guys!

    His email address is: tansgdd/at/
    I found him on craigslist singapore, but i think he has other email addresses in gumtree and locanto...

    The police told me that the safest thing is to always meet face-to-face, and to bring someone along when meeting up (especially since i am a petite girl).

    I've never posted in a forum before, but I feel i need to warn people that there are such malicious people out there who don't want to make an honest living, and would rather steal from people who do... i honestly pity him, because i'm wondering what he must have gone through in life to make him resort to doing such things... ):
