SINGAPORE – Since March, at least 46 people have lost about $750,000 after falling victim to a job scam in which conmen impersonated employees of Shopee.
The ruse involves victims getting unsolicited WhatsApp or Telegram messages from an individual pretending to be a Shopee employee, asking them to like items displayed on Shopee or to participate in a Shopee survey to earn a small fee, said the police.
We urge all job seekers to stay vigilant and alert so that they do not fall prey to such scams. If you are unsure about the authenticity of a job offer, or the identity of any personnel, please cease communication and contact the company directly to verify it.
