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.

PONZI SCHEME EXPOSED BY READER

We all want to be rich, so we park our money in places where we let our money grow, we also understand that every investment bears a level of risk depending on the business we are investing our money in. Some of us don't have the knowledge about investments, giving rise to a whole new industry of "investment firms" where people park their money and the company will do the necessary to keep the cash flowing thus making it a win-win situation. However, this is not as direct as it sounds. There are many companies that promise the world and don't deliver. As much as it is a terrible feeling to know you have lost all your money, it is an even more terrible feeling to know that the money you put in was not even used for the businesses these companies claim to be involved in. Sometimes they take it up a notch by investing in "showrooms" to give potential investors a feel about what they are investing in. I want to shed light on such companies that have.
