I was almost scammed today in Kuala Lumpur, next to the Jamek Mosque telling me that he is from Singapore and lost his wallet in the train station so he tries to get back to Singapore, I asked him how much costs the ticket there he said 50 Singaporian dollars. I felt smth is not jsit right coz I heard abt many scams happening in Asia. So I just told him he needs to find someone else.
I actually felt bad, coz the way he spoke was really convincing. Then i was like omg Am I bad person that I cant help ppl in need coz there is so many thiefs in this world?
So when I got home I read a bit and it really sounds like a scam, there were similliar stories already, also the ticket to Singapore by bus doesnt cost 50 dollars.
Now Im glad I did t support any scammer n left. If he was in real need, then I will go to hell, but u fortunately thats whats happenign in this world. U will become trust nobody.
So be carefull.
Im also tired of being approached so often just coz im solo white traveller.
