There is a new form of scam outside, the person would first list a property online for rent and later inform anyone who contacts there to buy Itune cards. This is a new smart move by scammers as anyone looking for rent obviously has the money to afford a few Itune cards.

Here is the story:

I was searching for room rental and had posted my info on this website(https://rentinsingapo??.com.sg/).

I received many legitimate offers but one of them was an obvious scam.

He introduced himself as Ahmed. He claimed to have moved abroad due to work circumstances and is trying to find someone to take over his apartment.

He gave me an HDB block address but the photos of the unit have condo furnishing and have a bathtub which is rare in HDB units.

The rental fee is also too good to be true for a master’s bedroom.
There were too many red flags.

But what really gave it away is when he asked me to buy iTunes card. If someone asks you to buy an Itunes card, never trust them!
