Ming Pao News has reported male students are also being tricked into believing “hot body” Chinese university students they meet on We Chat want to trade sex.

The We Chat scam reported to Ming Pao by one student in Richmond and two students in downtown Vancouver appears to be identical in its method and players to a We Chat sex-for-credit scam being reported in cities with large Chinese populations, including Singapore.

In the first half of 2015, people in Singapore lost S$1.59 million in such scams, as well as S$3.7 million in Internet love scams.

In the latter, scammers seek out victims via dating sites or social networking platforms and typically cheat them by claiming to be in financial trouble.

It’s not clear if the scammers involved in the cases reported to Ming Pao are based in Vancouver, China, or elsewhere.

But in Singapore has reported that over 200 men have fallen for a We Chat scam with identical elements.

Jimmy, who has not met any of his We Chat contacts, agreed and arranged to meet Momi. Instead, the Singaporean received a call from Momi's "friend", who asked him to buy an i Tunes card as payment for Momi's sexual services.

After Jimmy complied, he was asked to prove his identity by taking a photo of his identity card.

Chinese students in Vancouver are being targeted in an international sex scam run on the Chinese social networking app We Chat. We Chat is a texting service which Chinese international students in Vancouver use not only to chat, but to locate other users in public areas and trade food, cosmetics and toys.

How the scam works is this: male students are approached on We Chat by what appear to be sexy female students; believing the person associated to a We Chat photo avatar is real, the men are engaged in friendly chatting, sometimes exchanging sexy pictures, and eventually the We Chat friend mentions that she dabbles in prostitution and will offer “services” for a fee.
