Impersonation Scam
On the afternoon of September 20, 2023, I received a phone call from a male with a Malaysian accent, speaking in Mandarin in a friendly manner. He addressed me by name but mispronounced it, which raised my suspicion, as my Malaysian friends can pronounce it correctly. He claimed to have changed his phone number and asked me to update my contacts. When I didn't respond, he jokingly asked if I had forgotten who he was due to his number change. I informed him in English that I didn't have time to take his call, and he abruptly ended the conversation.

Please remain vigilant and avoid falling victim to such fake friend call scams.
