    Nowdays I see scams off the streets too. An indian guy approached me, claiming to be representative of the Malaysian Indian Childrens charity foundation in Malaysia asking for donations. Hmm, then what's he doing in SG? I realised he has a strong INDIA accent rather than Malaysian, when I spoke to him in Malay, he's dumbfolded.

    Haha, that's probably their generic reply, but at least I regsitered my report to the service provider, just in case my hp no. get made use of.

    In fact, my wife just gotten a similar call. She asked me "So I just remove the SIM card is it?"

    just end the call...thats all...because if you think back...unless u have entered your number onto the internet before...its kinda impossible for people to know your number...

    but there is too many reason why they got your number...just ignore these call...calling to your service provider is your last resort...

    It's not difficult for people to dial +65 9xxx xxxx and hope to get someone on the line. They don't know your name anyway.
