Here is the story:

“Hi admin, I would like to bring to your attention regarding these two people who are an Indonesian couple. They rented a room from me recently, but when I banked in the money given, I realised it was fake money

$1200 they paid me as a first deposit via PayNow, but subsequently, for the one-month rental money, they gave me $1000 in cash notes & the remaining $200 was sent to my PayNow. I didn’t think too much of it.

Only after I went to the bank and deposited all the money. The receipt shows only $300 deposited. I became suspicious already, I thought that maybe the money some of it got stuck inside the machine.

So I called up DBS they said will investigate for me. DBS confirmed that only the amount of 300 has been deposited, the rest given to me is fake cash notes.

I’ve made a police report regarding this matter as the couple doesn’t want to take responsibility.

I told them that if they think I cheat their money, can go police, they don’t dare.”
