70 Y.O ELDERLY FATHER SENT $3K TO SCAMMER PRETENDING TO BE FROM ICA

Singaporeans, please, tell your moms and dads to hang up the phone whenever they hear someone claiming to be a government rep, yet (1) they’re speaking Mandarin, and (2) they’re speaking in a foreign Mandarin accent.

This is such a simple rule to follow. If you hear Mandarin just hang up.

My mom is 65 and my dad is 70. They have received numerous scam calls over the years and my dad sent $3000 to what he thought was the ICA.

Now whenever they hear Mandarin they just hang up. Works perfectly.

If you’re reading this, scammer, please make an effort. Don’t speak in Mandarin. And even if you can’t be bothered to speak our official working language at least speak in a Singaporean Chinese accent.

I don’t know if you’ve been led to believe that we can’t tell apart Chinese accents but it takes us 2 seconds to know that you’re not local.

So please. Make an effort or stop scamming.
