WHAT IS A CREDIT-FOR-SEX SCAM?

A stranger befriends you through social media platforms such as WeChat. The scammer talks you into buying them a gift card (e.g. Alipay Purchase Cards, iTunes Gift Card, etc.) in exchange for a meet-up, date or sexual favours.

Look out for these scam signs

How to stay safe

Be wary whenever someone offers sex in exchange for gift cards or shopping credits.
Do not give out your personal details or disclose the gift cards PINs to strangers you meet online.
If you have encountered such a scam, report the fraudulent profile to WeChat via the app itself. Steps on how to report such accounts can be found here.
