Dear A.S.S. Editor
The Singapore Police have released a statement indicating that scams involving credit-for-sex in the first 16 days of March this year numbers 53. 53 cases in just 16 days! Last year, the total number reported to the police was 779. Seems like the scammers are getting bolder, and more people are just so desperate that they are falling for the scam.
Police said that victims are usually men, and the online platforms involved are WeChat, Locanto and OkCupid. Scammers would usually engage their victims via phone calls and online messaging. The victims are usually told to buy gift cards or online shopping credits such as iTunes or Alipay Purchase Cards before they can meet up or date the scammer. What makes the victims desperate to meet the scammer? Usually, sexual favours are dangled to the victim to entice them.
These men need to stop thinking about getting sexual favours from people they have never met. Time to stop, then use your brains to think that this is a scam no matter how enticing it sounds. And stop looking for sex online. Perverts!
