Lucky Draw Scams in Singapore

Source

Jan 2013 to March 2013
19 cases reported of which 8 were successful.
S$410,000 were cheated.

Jan 2012 to Dec 2012
327 cases reported of which 181 were successful.
S$7,400,000 were cheated.

Wow, that's a lot of money lost to scammers, how can people be so stupid? Just think about it, if you didn't participate in any lucky draw, or even if you did, is it the same one? Whatever it is, which lucky draw require you to pay money to claim money? Remember this, "If it's too good to be true, it probably is".
"Police say so far, biggest single amount cheated in such lucky draw scams was some S$1.127 million in June 2011."
That scammer must be laughing his head off.
