Soothsayer selling 'magic' numbers preys on gullible S'poreans at Waterloo St

http://singaporeseen.stomp.com.sg/st..._sporeans.html



A soothsayer who managed to charm onlookers into parting with their money for a set of 'magic' lottery numbers caught STOMPer David Copperfield's attention. He was amused by how gullible Singaporeans can be to fall for such stunts.

The STOMPer wrote:

"These pictures were taken at the Pedestrian Mall at Waterloo Street near the Chinese temple. This place is always crowded on a Saturday afternoon.

"You will find buskers, 'koyok' peddlers and soothsayers galore pulling in the crowd with their sweet talk and magic tricks.

"This elderly, bald and bespectacled man was able to pull in the crowd with his newspapers clippings and magic tricks.

"He gave away some lucky 4D numbers for free and for 'sure-win' numbers, the customers need to pay a price of $2 per lucky number.

"He first placed a metal bowl on a stool, then placed a black piece of paper on the bowl and covered it with a black cloth.

"He lighted a joss stick and waved it around the bowl while he uttered his magic incantation in a mellowed tone.

"He then asked the first onlooker to come forward to look into the bowl. The onlooker was able to identify the first digit.

"The elderly man then repeated the ritual and called the second onlooker to come forward. The second onlooker was able to identify 2 digits.

"He then called, in sequence, the third and fourth onlooker and the fourth person was able to identify all four digits.

"He sold these special numbers for $2 per number and the customers were very happy to part with their money.

"I am still puzzled as to why so many Singaporeans are so easily convinced that his magic numbers could help you strike the first three prizes in the next 4-D draw."

If he know the magic number, you think he will still let you know? You'd think he would charge $2 to give away thousands of dollars... -.-
