MAN GOT CALLS FROM INSURANCE AGENT WHO ASKED FOR CREDIT CARD NUMBER

So i got a call earlier from a guy claiming to be from AIG.

He was selling to me an insurance plan by phone and claiming that my profile was selected from a collab with Shopee (something about a Mercedes Benz). Disclaimer: I do take part in those frivolous lucky draws.

The guy was going on about the benefits of the plan and then ask if I would want to commit to enrolling for it.

It was just weird (for me) to be buying insurance by phone and the guy said that he will need my credit card number but assured me it’s not a scam as he will not ask for my OTP or CVS number (and that this is due to covid arrangement).

I just rejected his offer and proceeded to call Shopee hotline to verify if there were such a collab ongoing, the customer service told me no and that there’s only an AIG collab with Lazada (????).

I did a bit of digging and saw the last collab shoppe had w AIG was back in Feb 2021.

Has anyone else got such calls recently?

Note: The concern is not w marketers getting my contact info but the ‘new approach adopted by the alleged ‘AIG’ agents.

Here are what netizens think:

Oh, this. I got the call too, Shopee-Merc Benz lucky draw. The person who called me was from AIG. Gave a card number with no money on it, AIG tried deducting and failed but still got a letter from AIG afterwards. I cancelled under the free look period immediately after.

There are stringent MAS regulations on selling insurance products. It’s not like buying ice cream from girl guides at the door. Anyway why would anyone with a working brain give his credit card number to a rando over the phone

They called me previously and said it was the Mercedes draw since early February this year.
