    Then next monday, one lady called me again, telling me that the lucky draw I won was$200,000 dollars, since I was not there to collect the cash, they can send the money to my bank account, but they need to verify my particular, so she said she need full detail from me: My name, IC number, DOB and Bank account number. They will then transfer the money to my bank.

    I asked them to donate this money to charity on my behalf, and that lady was very angry, scolding me for why I don't believe her, I told her nevermind, I don't need the money, and I sincerely want to donate the money to charity, and hung up the phone.

    Still wandeling, what can they do with my information, but whatever it is, it is better be save then sorry and don't be greedy.
    I think you 'really' won a price! They can't do anything with your account number.......(it is written on any checck you write out anyway)

    They cant do anything with the particulars....? Correction, it has been proven there is alot that can be done with just your name and IC number. Example applying for a credit card in your name.

    Also it doesnt make sense that he will win something in a event he didnt even attend right?

    Scary? not really, I've already hung up the phone on a few of these 'supreme court' and other con artists. I just wonder how they get my number in the first place and why i seem to get targetted by these people. No harm tho, i can recognise them almost instantly now and just hang up.

    Hey there, just spoke to my fren who have an uncle in the police force.

    From what he said, if the police have some matters which need you to assist, they would either ask you to go down police station or come visit your at your residence.

    So beware those conmen posing at police on the phone.

    Btw I just got a call yesterday and when I heard a chinese woman asking in chinese "do you speak chinese?" I immediately cancel the call. After that no one call me back.

    I imagine the operators don't dial our numbers to call us, it could be some program that does the dialing so when my call didn't work out (I hung up), the program goes to the next number.

    So just hang up on them, don't have to be civil to conmen & conwomen
