Dear fellow friends,
here's a warning to all who travels overseas.
Recently a friend of mine were in Bangkok for a holiday. On the 21st Oct 2008, they were heading back to Singapore at Bangkok International Airport when they were approached by 2 chinese who claimed they are from China. But they told my friend that her manager got drunk during a business networking session at a KTV and lost his wallet and they needed about 600 RMB (S$130) more to buy a ticket back to China. And out of pity, my friend gave him the money. They exchanged contact numbers with namecard and they say they'll call back and transfer back the money.
(They may change their name and namecard)
1 week later, no news from them. My friend's China friend tried to call back but both numbers were off or not in used. And if they are from China, the chinese used should be in simple chinese. This chinese in this namecard is mainly used in Hong Kong or Taiwan.
He was Cheated!
So to you all, please, don't be such a kind-hearted person when it comes to money matters. Yes, I know that you might wanna help but if you're super rich and a hundred plus may be peanuts to you BUT I just hope that no one will go through this like how my friend go through.
Do spread this to all your friends who travels.
