Job Scam
I posted an ad about looking for work from home jobs on gumtree. someone contacted me by introducing himself as "boon" and he is from "rebox sg". he offered $600 weekly for me to post ads on social media and websites. the ad include pictures of apple iphone xr 128gb for the price of sgd 650 and iphone x 256gb for the price of sgd 700. i posted the ad on carousell as instructed. about half an hour later, a carousell user warn me about the scammer. He insisted on me calling the number (boon) using normal line. i tried calling and realise that the number was a deadline. i was able to reach him via whatsapp call and messages. i was lucky that someone reached out before anything happened. i deleted all my ads immediately. i hope there were no money lost by the victims.

Editor's Note: The company wrote in to NCPC to clarify that "Boon" wasn't a staff at the company. The scammer impersonated as staff of the company to cheat.
