Weekend shoppers at Suntec City were surprised to see some PRC tourists openly begging in the shopping mall. The group comprising of 2 male and 1 female, approaching unsuspecting shoppers and told a story of them being tourists from Shanghai.
They claimed they lost more then $40,000 at Marina Bay Sangs (MBS) and were in need of money for food. When some kind souls offered them a meal, they flatly rejected them and asked for cash only.
An eyewitness at the scene recounted how the 3 PRC “tourists” approached her on the pretext of directions before telling her their sad stories about losing money at the Casinos. They were all well-heeled PRC men.
In mid March this year, another netizen complained about well-dressed PRC scammers begging for money in the City Hall area. It is unclear if these were the same group of PRC scammers trying to prey on the goodness of Singaporeans.
