You probably don’t need us to tell you that you should always be careful of the people you interact with. Not everyone is who they seem to be, and not everyone’s intentions are pure and true. While we’re not saying you should suspect everyone you meet, it doesn’t hurt to be cautious!

That is advice we definitely think we should take to heart after reading this story shared by a netizen over Facebook recently, which talks about her experience in being scammed by a man who appeared to have honest intentions!

According to Facebook user Pei Yin Choo, she was approached by the young man at a CIMB Bank branch located in Taman Kinrara on 26th October, 2019. Now, interactions like these will probably raise a few eyebrows, as what most people do at banks is usually P&C (private and confidential).

So imagine her surprise when the young man told her that his ATM card was jammed in an ATM machine, and proceeded to ask if she could ‘borrow’ him some money, as he needed it desperately. The young man even went as far as to say that upon receiving the money from her, he would immediately reimburse the amount borrowed via bank transfer to her account. Hold on a second… 

Pei Yin even added that “He then supposedly made the transfer and shared with me screenshots via Whatsapp.”

This is despite the fact that Pei Yin repeatedly checked her account and did not see the money that was supposedly ‘transferred’ to her! Now you know something really fishy is going on. 

But instead of hanging around and waiting to see if the money was actually transferred properly (weird right, you would think he would want to check if he transferred such a large sum), the young man hurriedly said he needed to go. He then blamed the slow transaction process on the bank, saying that his account was a company account and the bank may be holding the transaction.

He did however, allow Pei Yin to take a photo of him and his driver’s license as proof of identification.

Ultimately, Pei Yin never received any of the money. She withdrew a four-figure sum and handed it to the young man, thinking that the IBG transaction receipt was all the proof she needed to be sure that she had received the money, and was scammed.

The license that the young scammer used as proof of his identity was apparently fake too! However, Pei Yin has included the young man’s particulars in her post so other people can avoid being scammed the same way.

Name: Desmond Lew Kok Sheng
IC: 980917-10-5231
HP: 011 1148 8867 (active phone number)

But if you remember, this isn’t the first time we have heard of this scammer and his activities, as he had already pulled off a similar scam on someone else previously!

So again, we have to remind our readers that you should definitely be careful of people who come up to you at the bank. You never know what their true motives are!
