Yesterday, the National Crime Prevention Council sounded off an alert about a scam message that has been making rounds recently, sent by a “ShengSiong”. The real Sheng Siong supermarket chain, however, has nothing to do with the “August Draw” that the message recipient was said to have taken part in.
The message includes a link to a website that will congratulate visitors for being one of the lucky few selected to score a free Huawei P30. But you have to key in your billing information, including your credit card details.
Keying in one’s credit card details would immediately incur a $122 monthly fee for a subscription of some kind of “unlimited online entertainment”. There is an option to cancel the subscription, but since this is a scam, one wonders if it will work.
