I Was Scammed Of $77k — Here’s What You Need To Learn From My Story

Han Ni fell for a pig butcher­ing scam — a mash-up of romance and invest­ment schemes run by Asia-based online scam syn­di­cates. She reveals how scam­mers first devel­oped an emo­tion­al inti­ma­cy by show­ing con­cern for her over a pro­longed peri­od. They then brain­washed her into invest­ing in a fake plat­form despite her doubts. They also told her not to tell her loved ones about the plat­form when instruct­ed to bor­row mon­ey from them. “It’s not because I’m too dumb, it’s just because (the scam­mers) are too good,” said Han Ni. Scam­mers often work in teams of four or five just to tar­get one vic­tim. They devel­op psy­cho­log­i­cal­ly manip­u­la­tive con­ver­sa­tion scripts tai­lored to each vic­tim through detailed analy­sis of the victim’s chat behav­iour and social media. By shar­ing her sto­ry, Han Ni hopes to expose their tac­tics to pre­vent oth­ers from falling for them.
