S’pore ‘toyboys’ fall victim to ‘sugar mummy’ scams
At least 20 men have lost a total of RM78,000 to such scams over the last three months, apparently run by Malaysians.
PETALING JAYA: Singaporean men have fallen victim to online “sugar mummy” scams, apparently operated by Malaysian “agents.”
According to The Star Online, at least 20 victims had sought police help in Singapore since December.
All of them had responded to online advertisements seeking “toyboys.”
The victims lost a total of SGD26,000 (RM78,300).
The aspiring “toyboys” were said to have been contacted by an agent named “Razak” from Malaysia, who was backed by testimonials from “satisfied customers.”
According to The Straits Times, one of the victims, Harry, a psychology student, said Razak gave him a list of women to choose from before asking for a registration fee of RM1,500.
Harry was promised up to RM12,000 per night to sleep with rich married “sugar mummies” based in Singapore.
“Razak said these mummies were based in Singapore but they all had to go through him.”
After payment was made, the agent transferred him to an “admin manager”, who asked him for an additional “insurance fee” of RM6,000 to protect the sugar mummy from any unfortunate incidents.
When the manager asked for an additional RM3,000 to “certify the insurance was legitimate”, Harry realised he was being taken for a ride and demanded his money back.
“The agent kept saying: ‘I am never going to cheat you. I will never run away.”

Police are investigating the cases and appealed for anyone with information to come forward. They urged the public to be wary of dubious online adverts, and when corresponding with strangers online.
Mr Chong Ee Jay, manager of Touch Cyber Wellness, a voluntary welfare group that teaches Internet safety, said this online scam was one of the more insidious ones.
“It drives up the fantasy level and thinking in the person’s mind, sometimes to the extent that they might be willing to take high risks,” said Mr Chong. “They know there are risks involved but because of the end in mind, with the false assumption that they can get more out of this – they take that risk.”
Earlier this month police reported a surge in online crime here which has pushed up the overall crime rate. There were 1,203 credit-for-sex scams last year, up from just 66 in 2014.
