Scam Using WeChat
WHAT IS A SCAM USING WECHAT?
You see a pop-up or online ad for game credits or Chinese Reminbi at attractive rates If you click on the ad you’re instructed to add the seller on WeChat and register an account with your personal information and bank account details on a website in order to receive the game credits. You’re asked to pay for the game credits via Alipay, iTunes or MyCard. Once you’ve paid, the scammer does not deliver the game credits and becomes uncontactable. You may be asked to make multiple payments or authenticate or activate the bank account.
In the case of foreign currency, you’re asked to transfer money to a Singapore bank account before you receive the Chinese Renminbi in your WeChat or Alipay account. Once you've transfered, the scammer goes dark and blocks you on WeChat.
