Look at the recent OCBC saga, police can't do anything, bank can't do anything, our govt can't do anything. The scammers overseas will be so happy and excited that they will tell their fellow countrymen that they managed to huat big big without anyone able to do anything to them.. Soon their whole village will be full time scammers liao..

Maybe they have a school to teach how to scam sinkies $$$.. jialat

Let's say you received a phishing scam SMS and you seek an explanation from teleco and the bank on why you received such SMS, or how come u received it?

Can bank or teleco say they are not obliged to explain to you why you received such SMS?

Actually can, but probably will waste resources to catch these small pawns. to them, its a waste of time and resources.

imagine you trace their IP, then find their location in another country, you still need to seek approval/cooperation from the local authorities which also needs diplomatic relations of both countries, then plan how to catch the scammers, only to catch 8-10 behind the computer.

and you have just used over 50 personnel and a couple of months at the very least. wu hua bo?

If we keep our money in biscuit tin & no credit card, we face lesser risk?

Actually scammer should scam the rich people. Normally only rich will lead them to become greedy. Normally working people and old people money better don't scam.

It's a part of society for so so long. Not like it's anything new.

It's personal responsibility at this point to not get scammed. It's easy to attribute the incident to banks/govt. But thinking they could prevent this is idealistic. There are more subtle scams ongoing but most people accept them. *Cough* Subsciption services *Cough* :o
