    I received this night a WhatsApp message from an unknown number to my private WhatsApp number (area code 972).

    The unknown number is:

    852 5323 8132

    On the profile picture is a young smiling Asian girl.

    Under the number the name « Lisa » is written.

    The message was « Hi ».

    I didn’t reply.

    I blocked the sender (unfortunately I omitted to report him/her) and deleted the chat.

  • June 20, 2022 at 4:24 AM by an anonymous user from: Marsa, Malta

    A girl named Agnes Turner (Chinese name BaI Qian) claiming to be from Shenzhen in China contacted me asking for assistance to set up business in Malta. The conversation sounded plausible for a while but then she asked for the chat to switch over to WhatsApp. I replied that WhatsApp is blocked in China however she sent me a Hong Kong number 852... This is where I became suspicious. She is still active on LinkedIn so if this is a scammer then please beware. I will keep her (or him) on the hook for a while but see how long it lasts when I do not connect on WhatsApp. Thanks for the forum.

    I didn’t respond to this one since I do t have the time. The last 2-3 I responded to knowing they are scammers. When I bored I like to see how good they are. The last one acted like she was contacting her vet because her dog very sick. I said wrong number. She explained more about her dog. I actually looked up the place she said she was contacting and gave her the number. But of course that’s not the point. She continued chatting me up and apparently forgot about her poor sick dog. I forget what it ended on. Either she mentioned crypto, and I blocked her or she tried to get me to meet her on another platform and I blocked her. Both of those are signals to me that the chat will be boring now so I don’t bother.
