SERIAL THIEVES WHO CAME AS TOURISTS JAILED FOR THEFTS

Three foreign talents, while on holiday in Singapore, went on a stealing spree involving sums of $11,549. The trio, who were Romanians, were in Singapore for an eight day trip, and were given jail sentences for 14, 12 and 6 months each.

All three of them had enough money, reportedly about $9,257 and various other amount in foreign currency, but decided to steal money from shops on the first day they were here. All three arrived in Singapore on 29 March, and were scheduled to depart on 5 April.

Their plan was simple, go to shops, pretend to ask for change of smaller denominations from $100, remove few pieces and keep in pocket, and return the small denominations and ask for the $100 note back, seemingly having changed their minds. They would then make a quick exit, return to a rental car, and move on to the next shop.

WRONG FOR ORGANISERS BANK ON MESSI THEN SAY HE'S NOT COMING

A football fan felt cheated that Messi will not be playing in tonight's match despite repeated assurance that he will turn up. He blamed the organisers for not having integrity and by making use of Messi's star-draw to make money. "Promoting the match using his undisputed star-draw, then belatedly and limply attributing his absence to "personal reasons", without even a cursory attempt at an explanation, displays an alarming lack of integrity and competence, and a blatant disrespect for football fans on the part of the organisers. It has been widely reported that Messi was preparing for his wedding at the end of this month. Surely a responsible organiser would have scrupulously confirmed if he would be part of the game."

MORE THAN 40 PPL CHEATED BY PAYPAL SCAM

More than 40 people have been cheated by a PayPal scam which involves fake buyers sending fake emails to pretend that they have paid for the items. The emails reportedly looked legitimate as it seemed to have come from PayPal and other reputable banks. In some cases, they cheated people of fake "admin fees" to activate their PayPal accounts in order for them to receive payment.

Victims of the scam did not receive a single cent. The SPF is warning everyone to always seek official verification by logging in to their PayPal accounts first, rather than opening attachments in emails or freely giving out their credit card details.

FAS: JACKPOT MONEY SHOULD BE CHANNELED BACK INTO FOOTBALL

Funny how all these years of having professional football clubs, supposedly run like a business, and running jackpot machines at their clubhouse as a surefire way to make more money, yet they always complain of lack of funds. In fact, based on the Tiong Bahru saga, it seemed that they made $36.8million out of the jackpot machines! Their revenue higher than the FAS budget of last year. Even after subtracting all the taxes and money being put back in jackpot winnings, the income still amounted to $5m. And all these while, these S.League clubs are complaining about having a tight budget!

The money is right there under their noses. Just that they were not channeled back into football. So, whatever happened to the income generated? And only now FAS realised they should channel jackpot earnings back to the football? Professional run clubs and association, they are not.

MY SIS GOT CHEATED BY SG PLAYBOY BUT WAS NEVER AFTER HIS MONEY

I'm the brother of the girl who got cheated by a playboy in your previous article. I can't stop people from bashing my younger sister for sending the article but I want to assure everyone her intentions is not to shame Mark Seow Jun Hao. Mark, do you remember that time my sister rush to your place so late at night to bring you soup when you told her you had fever? How about she keep recommending you friends to buy insurance from you? Even when you tell her you no cash as business poor recently she still stuck by you and never ask you to pay for dates but go dutch? Mark is not handsome to all those saying my sister is with him for looks. He has acne marks on his face and that's a fact. But I leave it to the rest to judge him for looks. He is also not rich. I know him after all.

I'm just angry at how Mark treat my sis after all she had done for him. This is not a gender thing. Think of one moment you treat someone close to you, maybe a good friend or partner very well, trust him/her only to have him/her betray you in the end? Anyway, all I hope is for my sis to recover from this hurt and find someone better that she deserves. As for Mark Seow Jun Hao, karma will get you one day. Don't treat people like shit, like pebbles for you to step all over, use and throw after people sincerely cared for you. One day you will find yourself someone who will also treat you like shit.

MOTHER GOT CHEATED $9000 WORTH OF MILK POWDER BY ONLINE SELLER, BEWARE!

A Singaporean woman got cheated of almost $9000 after spending it on 150 tins of milk powder. She lodged a police report after failing to contact the sellers who disappeared with her money. She chanced upon a couple who were selling milk powder online for at least 20% cheaper. She trusted them as she had smooth transactions with them before, and later started a spree with 14 other mothers.

This time, however, the sellers gave excuses like having car break down and other management issues. They gradually became uncontactable after receiving the money. As a result, the woman was misunderstood for cheating other mothers of their money. She even had to borrow from her mother-in-law to return them the money and make them appeased. Walao eh, milk powder also want to cheat.
