Victim of foreign exchange scam was gullible

Dear Editor,

The young lady who willingly and naively handed over twenty thousand dollars, from all appearances, to someone she did not know, was to my mind gullible; she was easy pickings (‘Caught in a foreign exchange scam’ SN, December 23).

How in heaven’s name, after all the goings-on in society, can you be taken in by a smooth talker and readily and easily hand over money without thinking.

From the letter it can be discerned that the driver and conductor of the bus might have been consorted with the scammer/conman.

The young lady might have our sympathies but I am sure she must be ruing the day she got into that minibus.

Yours faithfully,

Shamshun Mohamed
