Have u heard this before?
« on: April 04, 2006, 01:19:58 AM »
Hi all, my dad and his fren went out for lunch with his frens, then he was approached by another guy claiming to know my dad and few of his frens...as the convesation run smoothly.....then the guy changed to topic to handphones...and were saying that he knows a lot about phones...and own a mobile phone shop.....

then...he took my dad's mobile phone and comment it then he turned the phone off...and gave it back to my dad...luckily my dad still can recall his pin no.....then he turned it back on.

he did the same thing to my dad's fren....but this time....his fren cant remember the pin because all these while he never had any pin code for his phone. That guy might have set a pin code purposely, so that he cant turn the phone on.......

so because of that......he said he'll reset the pin code..but he need to take the phone to his shop.....in just few seconds he dissapeared.....with the phone...and ofcos didnt appear back after that......

which come to conclusion that the guy just conned my dad's fren.......

AIks.. so easy meh to kena tipu? I think we should be more alert la, jgn terpegun sangat.. you know, stay focus and alert. They have many tricks to make you excited and forget about certain things... damn bahaya man.

Like if people hit you from the back, of coz you'll go out of the car to take a look.. but their friends from somewhere might just drive off with your car... not our fault but we are unaware of the circumstances.

that's why sometimes i see people don't dare to help others. it's not that these people are not kind or good hearted but because too many of these things happen so all takut already.

guys.. i received this email today.. quite scary also.. esp for girsl..



Dear Friends:

I know not all of you are women that I am sending this to, but I am
hoping you will share this with your wives, daughters, mother, sisters,
etc. Our world seems to be getting crazier by the day. Pipe bombs in
mailboxes and sickos in parking lots with perfume. Be careful. I was
approached yesterday afternoon around 1:30 pm in a car park by two males
who asked what kind of perfume I was wearing. Then they asked if I'd
like to sample some fabulous scent they were willing to sell me at a very
reasonable rate I probably would have agreed had I not received an
e-mail some weeks ago warning of a 'Wanna smell this neat perfume?' scam.

Someone walks up to you at the malls or in parking lots and asking you
to SNIFF PERFUME that they are selling at a cheap price. THIS IS NOT
PERFUME...IT IS ETHER! When you sniff it, you'll pass out. They'll take
your wallet, your valuables and heaven knows what else. The men
continued to stand between parked cars, I guess to wait for someone else
to hit   on.  I stopped a lady going towards them, pointing at them and told her
About  how I was sent an e-mail at work.

If it were not for this e-mail, I probably would have sniffed the
'perfume' but thanks to the generosity of an e-mailing friend, I was
spared whatever might have happened to me. I wanted to do the same for you.
