Was tuning in to 933 this morning and there were mentions of phone calls to parents saying that their child is being taken and asking for ransom. In both of the cases mentioned, the caller will ask the child to scream for help in the background which turned out that it was not their child BECAUSE their child do not know how to speak mandarin!!!!! DUH!
There seem to be an increase in using children as a way of cheating or robbery. Received an sms from a friend:
“Please take note that if in the middle of the night there’s a small kid whom you do not know knock on your door for help, please do not open and seek assistance from the police. This is the latest tactic of robbery.”
So to all my dear friends, please be careful…
