“I Asked If He Was A Scammer, He Hung Up On Me” — Chinese Restaurant Owner Encounters F&B Reservation Cheat
A new phone scam has been making its rounds in Singapore lately, and it involves F&B businesses. One affected restaurant was Fortune Court in Chinatown, a Cantonese diner set up by former Peony Jade staff.
According to Fortune Court’s co-owner and restaurant manager Connie Chee, 55, the ruse involved a scam caller contacting her last Thursday to make a large reservation. “He wanted to book three tables for the next day and asked me to give him my most expensive menu including three big crabs,” she recalled.
