13 January, a scammer from India scammed my mother out of her life savings which she has saved for 10 years. As her daughter, I have tried to do everything I could to prevent the transactions from going through but I could not do anything about it.
I have met up with a reporter from online media, mothership and here is the link to what happened - https://mothership.sg/2020/01/singapore-lady-i-banking-transfer-scam/?fbclid=IwAR28lQSPAMcgK2xtx_haEqiT3_RBwZUS4mg8wn8fk7xAYRZXUthDcqheiWo
Even the national newspaper picked it up and here is the link to their report - https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/courts-crime/widow-left-with-99-after-life-savings-of-55000-wiped-out-in-viber-scam-police
And I have written in details on my Facebook page.

27 Jan 2020 - I am drafting my email to the Prime Minister's Office and I really hope whatever my mother is going through today, should not happen to someone else. It is heart-breaking to see my mother's pain and I hope I can reach out to anyone who will support my cause in giving back to my mother what she lost.
Furthermore, being a muslim, she was saving to perform Hajj this year and I hope, she is still able to go and perform it this year. She has gone through enough devastation and I do not think anyone'e old parents should have to experience what she is dealing with every day...
