Don't be fooled by Fake Friend call scams

Impersonation Scam
A scammer called claiming to be KC, a Malaysian working in Singapore. He said he changed his number but sounded exactly like him. He asked me to add him on WhatsApp and continue the conversation there. He mentioned the need to pay a contractor and asked for assistance on registering a new PayNow number. I taught him how to register, but he mentioned his bank account was locked. He requested my help to make a payment of $1,000 and promised to reimburse me tomorrow.
