Dear A.S.S. Editor
Police have arrested yet another online scammer. A 20 year old woman was arrested for allegedly cheating victims who wanted to buy tickets to Universal Studios Singapore (USS) and staycation packages at Hard Rock Hotel Sentosa.
The woman posted the items for sale at online platform Carousell, and it was offered at a discounted rate. The police received reports between last Thursday and Sunday from victims who said they met with the suspect to make payment. The suspect promised that the tickets and packages would be delivered the next day but the victims never received them, and the seller became uncontactable.
Police investigations led them to the woman, and they arrested her on Sunday. Police have reminded the public to always be on the lookout of scammers, especially in this day and age of online shopping.
