280. Two para-police guards at the CEA office

I was surprised to see two senior para-police guards outside the CEA office as there were none two weeks ago. "We are protecting the CEA directors inside the offices. Many housing agents had their licences revoked and we have much experience handling such riotous people."

The CEA is set up to regulate the housing agents and started in Nov 2010. "There is a Chinese syndicate conning the people," the guard told me. I was surprised to know that. The world has changed and there may be more cunning scam and con men and women who want to make fast bucks without having to work.

  1. Dr Sing, like many fellow Singaporeans, I am sure you are aware that there are indeed many mainlander syndicates involved in all kinds of organised crimes here in Singapore. Due to our open-door policy & lax migrant background checks, we have attracted all kinds of opportunists who have significantly raised our crime-levels (especially scams, illegal prostitution & violent crimes) in recent times.
