If you are planning on going to JB City Square, note it is under internal renovations.
Parts of it still operating.
More Singaporeans fall for "Scratch and Win" scam in JB
JB youngsters hanging around overhead bridges pushing scratch and win scams
There is big signboard warning tourists walking over from the JBCIQ into City Square, to beware of Scratch and Win scams.
You never fail to be accosted by packs of roving youngsters (usually Chinese) trying to push this scam onto tourists.
They also hang around the overhead pedestrian bridges nearby.
It is a sad indictment of the lack of opportunities for JB youth. They have to resort to this to make a living.
Needless to say, the people behind these scams are gangsters who just exploit the plight of the JB youth.
This reflects on that country as a whole.
