Someone, seemingly in desperate need for money, has listed their "unused" traffic points for sale on an online marketplace platform.
You can find the screenshot of the listing on All Singapore Stuff's Facebook page. Or, for convenience sake, here's the image.
Looking for someone who need 12 points
For some who might be confused, this means that the seller is willing to take the blame for you (the buyer) if you have any 12 demerit point traffic offence, which in this case, would be beating the red light. There are other 12 point offences though.
12 demerit point offences?
There are 3 in total

However, I think only the first two are applicable because you'll have to attend court for the last one (opportunists can charge a higher fee for this, I suppose).
Is this legal?
You say leh? Of course not!
If you get caught abetting a "criminal", under section 204A of the Penal Code you’ll be charged with
Obstructing, preventing, perverting or defeating course of justice
Whoever intentionally obstructs, prevents, perverts or defeats the course of justice shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to 7 years, or with fine, or with both.
But that doesn't seem to stop some dumb F@#s from trying to get some extra cash with their traffic points.
If only there wasn't this dumb doxxing law now. We could expose their identities but, oh well.
What the people say
Apparently, there's like a black market rate for points. What in the world. Wait a minute, doesn't that mean that the person selling for $250 is giving a mad discount?
Yeah the listing is a little confusing right?
