Met Oscar on the Cmb app, and he promptly suggested continuing our conversation on WhatsApp or Telegram. He mentioned residing in a condo in Upper Thomson and recently achieving a milestone by acquiring a car.

He was insistent on speaking over the phone, engaging in sweet talk, and informed me of his imminent trip to KL in two days. He shared images of his luggage, pre-boarding preparations, and arrival in KL. Additionally, he mentioned his company's app restrictions on camera use due to NDA.

Repeatedly, he brought up an upcoming BTO project in Ang Mo Kio, seeking assistance in inspecting progress before making a decision on a capital placement.

As a token of appreciation, he claimed to have "purchased a Tiffany necklace" symbolizing his constant presence in my heart. He also mentioned a second gift, a unique code from someone named Melvin, involved in the capital placement, which would expire at midnight.

Upon my rejection, he accused me of dishonesty and distrust, raising his voice and demanding a decision on whether to continue the conversation or hang up.
