Today's Sunday Times - a man got cheated by her PRC wife of his life savings. And a week or so ago, a woman was cheated of her life savings by a cabbie.
Seems that people are so very gullible or there are crooks and thieves everywhere. This reminds me of a movie called World without Thieves starring Andy Lau. And those cheated are matured folks, not young and impressionable chaps.
So, is it the emotional involvement or this crazy thing called love or rather blind love or is it that some would trust another more than 100%, with their money and their heart.
Come to think of it, our CPF money is really very, very safe. That is until you reach 55. Could we consider it a blessing in disguise when we reach 55 and able to draw out our hard earned money. How many is able to keep and spend that money wisely. Food for thought.
