As the rest of the world opened doors in mid-2022 and moved on from the COVID-19 pandemic, 300 million Chinese people remained in mandatory lockdown under China’s strict zero-COVID policy. At the height of the country’s worst coronavirus outbreak, food became scarce, medicine was hard to come by and survival became a daily struggle. Fuelled by anger and anxiety, people took to the streets in a rare show of protest, demanding an end to the lockdown. Within days, the Chinese government responded in an extraordinary policy u-turn. But for many, the sudden freedom could not erase the painful memories of being trapped. Hear the emotional stories of those who still carry the scars in this 2-part CNA special.
A rich Korean heir, a budding entrepreneur, a shrewd investor and a passionate lover. These are some of the many roles Jerald Low played throughout his criminal career. The 27-year-old is arguably Singapore's most prolific serial scammer, his crimes ranging from investments, property and love scams to telco fraud. By the time he was arrested, Low had almost S$100,000 in his pocket, charming his victims into believing that he came from a wealthy family with unrealised ambitions and that he was looking for a soulmate. Except, the truth couldn’t be further. The Serial Swindler is a two-part CNA original podcast which examines: How does an ordinary person convince so many people to believe his audacious lies? And what makes a serial con-artist tick? An original series adapted from the CNA documentary "Catching A Scammer: Singapore's Serial Swindler".
