Impersonation Scam
Picked up a call with local number without +65 prefix.

The number used was 81943749

The person never gave his name. He said i change handphone number so calling to let you know.

Me: hello, who is this
Caller: hey [my name] I just wanted to update you I changed my number
Me: huh who is this
Caller: you don’t recognise me Ah
Me: huh who is this? No I don’t.
Caller: Wah I always eat lunch with you at [my residential area].
Me: i don't know who you are
Caller: wah nvm nvm, i will whatsapp you
Me: ok.
