Don’t assume that making a transaction to someone’s account in Malaysia is safe. Usually, we don’t know who the account belongs to and the money will be withdrawn immediately by a third party who is cooperating with the love scam syndicate.
On the Internet, don’t be easily fooled by romantic lines and sweet talk that come too easily. They serve to blind us and deceive us more easily.
You must know and understand in advance the nature of the Internet because we don’t know who’s really communicating with us, especially in this virtual world.
If you have doubts about your online friends, contact the authorities to seek further advice before too late. (Police, Immigration, Customs and the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission)
If your online acquaintance tells you that they are a foreigner, check their residence address through the Internet.
If someone you met on the Internet proposes marriage to you in a short period of time, test their commitment and sincerity by asking them to meet up first and see if they’re willing. This way, you don’t have to fork out a penny to prove they are not scammers.
