    Default HUA SING PHONE SCAM! BEWARE

    Hi Guys,



    I received a series of calls from this company 'Hua Sing' (they speak in mandarin and call was either Blocked or from Hong Kong, +852 6725 7360)

    1st Call - they invite you to a charity event to lower your guard
    2nd Call - they ask if you are at the event itself (which most of us won't attend coz we are busy or wondering what this dubious company is doing)
    3rd Call - they claim you won a prize but weren't at the location itself to claim the prize.

    They then request for your personal information so that they can verify your particulars, which I didn't.

    I found them dubious and called Singapore Police Force, which they say yes, it's a SCAM and they received numerous reports on it.

    DON'T REVEAL YOUR INFORMATION TO THESE SCUMS.

    The moment I see a China or hong Kong number I am on my guard. The moment I hear an unfamiliar person speaking in Chinese, I will respond in other languages and the party will hang up.

    This reminds me of my personal experience. Got a call from a chinese speaking operator. She asked for my time but I declined. She insisted that I give her opportunity so after declining 2 more times, I let her speak. Half way through the conversation, I cut her and said I'm not interested. Then she insisted that I must let her finish. After she finished, I said sorry I'm not interested. She scolded me and said why I didn't tell her from the beginning and insinuated that I wasted her time. Before I could scold her, she slammed the phone in my face. I don't know what hit me... Crap calls!

    Next time if I receive such calls, I will ask her if she's the prize but since she is a phone operator likely is "Laga lorry" one.

    I scared I want to do gift exchange with people, people see you run away Liao....

    On 1st Mar, my home phone rung, it was an overseas call, luckily I have a caller ID, so I didn't pick it up. The number is 852-221-69364.

    Few years back, my sister received a home call, a boy was crying and he kept calling her mummy and murmuring about something which my sister couldn't hear properly, it sounds like her son. Luckily she has a caller ID and the number appeared to be an overseas calls. She knew that it was a trap because her sons were in Singapore, she quickly hung up the phone and called her sons immediately to confirm that they were safe.
