A friendly reminder to all people out there,

As more and more fraud cases are surfacing,

I strongly encourage people to beware and take safety measures against it..

Should you encounter any fraud cases, please do not hesitate to report to Authorities

Do your part as a citizen and lets just stop fraud/scam cases!

How to prevent fraud case?

Payment by bank :

If you are receiving emails from banks,claiming that you had received your payment,

check on your own account balance to see if there is any transaction being done.

Be extra cautious when receiving those confirmation emails,asking you to send out items before getting payment as most of them are scams.

Call on the respective banks during working hours to verify the transaction.

For safer purposes, double check the phone numbers you are calling [ as some uses fake lines to cheat you.]

*Try Google search for the respective banks as majority of the banks are being listed in the field.

If everything seems suspicious, make a trip down to the Authorities[ whom it may concern, preferably Police station] to file for a report.

Payment Via PayPal :

If you are receiving payment via PayPal, or should you receive any emails claiming to be from PayPal,

You may forward your received emails to PayPal Spoof email at :

You will received a email from PayPal to verify to you if the suspected email is fraud.

If everything seems suspicious, make a trip down to the Authorities[ whom it may concern, preferably Police station] to file for a report.

And, also to share with you a safety precaution against Phone scams.

Extracted from Singapore Police Force's website :




1. Police have recently detected a new variation of phone scams in which
culprits make extortion calls to business offices demanding money. Like the
earlier versions of phone scams, they are designed to trick victims into parting
with their money. The calls are believed to be made from overseas.

Modus Operandi

2. Typically, the culprit would call business offices threatening to use
violence to disrupt the victim’s business activities or cause harm to family
members if payments were not made. The culprit is also known to converse in
Mandarin with a China / Taiwanese accent and may use one of the following
threats on the victim:

i. He may demand for a sum of money, claiming that it is needed to assist
the victim’s associate/relative who has allegedly murdered someone to flee the

ii. He may tell the victim that his family and company are being watched and
threaten to harm them if his demands are not met;

iii. He may threaten to kidnap female victims and take nude photos of them if
they fail to comply with his demands;

iv. He may claim that he has links with secret societies and needs money to
help his men flee Singapore after committing serious crimes;

v. He may claim to be in possession of firearms / explosives and threaten to
harm the victim or disrupt business operations.

Crime Prevention Advisory

3. While the culprits have been unsuccessful so far and none of the threats
made have been carried out, members of the public are advised to be aware of
and vigilant against such scams. Members of the public should never reveal any
of their personal details, including those of their business or family to the caller.
Members of the public should also not transfer money to unknown persons and
report the case to the police as soon as possible.

4. Members of the public are advised to remain vigilant against the other
variations of phone scams as well such as the kidnap, lottery and impersonation

More details of such scams and the relevant crime prevention advisories
can be found at the Singapore Police Force website at or the
Commercial Affairs Department website at

I hope that i can get your attention and awareness to the members of the public.
