He was directed to wait for his date in front of a Richmond convenience store.
When he arrived and texted to his expected date, she told him to purchase an i Tunes online shopping card inside the convenience store, claiming that to avoid police scrutiny a transfer of ITunes points would be safer than cash.
Dzaffir said police received a report from a friend of the victim the same day saying that he had received a video and picture of the victim on We Chat, sent from the victim’s own phone.
"A man speaking in Taiwanese accent then called and directed me to buy RM300 worth of MOLPoints (for games) and send a snapshot of the receipts to Bobo.
"After having done that, the man called again to demand another RM1,500 worth of MOLPoints as 'security'." Wang said the man seemed to have casted a spell on him and it was a gust of wind at the crucial moment that brought him back to his senses and made him realise that it was a scam.
Wang took pity on her and agreed to meet her at Taman Seri Inderapura at 2pm on Sunday.
When he turned up for the date, she called him and said her agent would contact him to make sure he was not an undercover cop.
He said, after taking him to a room, the woman, who is in her 20s, asked the man to take a shower first, then left the room.
However, several minutes later, there was a knock on the room door.
She said her friend will call me to make sure i'm not a police and I said okay.
A moment later, the guy called me asking me questions and asked me to take a photo of My Identification card and send it to the girl (I;m so fucking stupid, I should have know its a scam from the beginning).
After getting to know Wang better following a series of chats, the girl, who initially said she came to Kuantan alone to study, bared her soul and told him that she had been offering sex for money to pay for her living expenses, and asked him to patronise her.
"Bobo tempted me with very sweet words, saying she would give me a special price – RM300 to take her out for two hours and double the price for a night. After that, Wang said, Bobo changed tact and played the sympathy card, saying how heavy her burden was, and could afford only cup noodles for each meal.
