Here's something I don't understand. Don't these women read newspapers or portals or something?
Do they live in a cave?
There have been so many cases of this kind of scam.
I'd like to say: " serves them right"...
According to the NST today, a 46-year-old office clerk was conned of RM75,000 by her boyfriend whom she had met through a social networking site.
The woman, from Kampung Sungai Merab Hulu in Kajang, lodged a police report on Wednesday, saying her boyfriend, who introduced himself as Chris Joshwen from the United Kingdom, had told her that he would be coming down to Malaysia to visit her on Valentine's Day.
On Feb 13, she received a call from a woman who claimed to be a Customs officer at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) that Joshwen had been detained by the authorities for failure to declare the items that he brought in.
The "officer" then told the victim that she had to pay RM75,000 for his release.
Without questioning much, the victim withdrew her money and banked in the amount in four transactions into three different accounts as instructed by the "officer".The rest of the story HERE.
How many similar con cases like this have we read? Are they that naive, that vulnerable?
