Bravo! OCBC officer saves client from losing $32,500 to Facebook scammer

An alert bank employee who acted on her instincts saved a customer from being ripped off to the tune of $32,500.

OCBC Bank service officer Chan Mee Lian, 43, knew something was amiss when a female customer came into the Jurong East branch and asked to make some baffling transactions.

The woman, 60, wanted to withdraw $20,000 and then transfer $32,500 from her savings account.


Ms Chan's suspicions proved valid. The police report said the woman befriended a Facebook user named "Tony Ng" two weeks earlier and he requested a $32,500 fee to process the delivery of some items.

He even sent the woman messages on WhatsApp, threatening to sue her if the money was not sent by 5pm that day.
