    Flush it down the toilet where it belongs.

    The hopelessly incompetent fraudsters send such thing out en masse hoping that there is one stupid fool out of a million who can be conned.

    Does anyone believe a total stranger will walk up to you to offer you US$875,000 (25% of US$3,500,000) for doing investment for her, and willing to let you take her as daughter?

    The fact that such scam did work despite so many news about them, good that TS share again to remind everybody.

    For whatever reasons people falls into such trap, we should keep reminding them when we come across any.

    Everybody knows smoking is bad for you.

    Yet there are still many people smoke.

    So we have to keep reminding you and those in primary schools that smoking is bad for you.

    Nope, I just believe that any cynical bugger full of negativity that has such deep grudge and heavy resentment against their home nation and its people should just bloody scoot off instead and never come back than rather be a virtual keyboard warrior, whining non-stop online almost everyday.

    How's your SingTel's reception from Nusajaya? Hoped you brought your group of FUD clan to tag along also.

    Great movie, nice witty satirical poke.

    One of the many reasons ( as of many chronic issues ) why smoking could persist so long is because the crippling medical sequelae takes way too long to manifest. The rest of us would in the meantime be inhaling their negative externality into our lungs.
