    Default Donation scam

    http://forums.hardwarezone.com.sg/sh....php?t=1974906

    Apparently some group of kids are asking for "donations" or what for some purposes at MRT stations.

    Next time just video record their faces and activities and shame them online. Let's see what their parents and schools will think.

    Mmmm over the weekend there were groups of PRC and local youngsters holding cans that say Sichuan Earthquake. Honestly didn't know if they are from any group, I didn't go ask. However I saw practically everyone they approached reach into their wallets and give notes not coins....

    If they are cheats... well they must have raked quite abit over the weekend.

    Ask them to produce a permit.

    If the say from charity, ask for permit. If they say from school, ask them produce their student card, or if not ezlink, then call that school on the spot. Pretend also can. See how they react.

    i know 2 places that they hang around during sunday afternoon/night.
    but they know of the hardwarezone thread so they most likely lie low for a while.
    and they delete their blog accounts as well.
    you can try spotting them at around funan mall taxis stand or at the city hall mrt exit.
    i dont mind going to the area to stalk them.
    another place is right in front of the cathay in the late afternoon.

    bring small super zoom cam can already.
    dont alert them too easily.
    cos i think they gonna lie low for at least a month.
    if not use a vr zoom lens instead or the 18-135mm.

    now is sch holidays so they bound to be around somewhere...
    is only during the sch holidays they are out prowling...
