Beware of Scammers Impersonating Police Officers

谨防冒充警察的诈骗集团

From Singapore Police Force Facebook

Police reminded the public who received calls from the Singapore Police Force to be vigilant.
Victims usually receive calls from scammers through the “Whatsapp” application. These scammers will claim to be police officers and use public police photos as their avatars on messaging apps.
Victims will be notified that there is a problem with their bank account. The scammer used the excuse of helping the victim to solve the problem and asked the victim to provide personal information, including bank account, credit card information and one-time password (OTP).
These calls are not made by the police. Citizens who receive such calls should take the following crime prevention measures:
Police statement. No government agency will obtain personal information over the phone;
Do not disclose your personal or online banking details and OTP to anyone;
If you accidentally disclose your bank information to scammers, please terminate the transaction and cancel the credit or debit card immediately.

警方提醒接到自称是新加坡警察部队人员电话的公众要保持警惕。
受害者通常会通过”Whatsapp”应用程序收到来自诈骗者的电话。这些骗子会声称自己是警察,并在信息应用程序上使用公开的警察照片作为他们的头像。
受害者将被告知他们的银行账户存在问题。骗子以协助受害人解决问题为借口,要求受害人提供个人资料,包括银行账户、信用卡资料和一次性密码(OTP)。
这些电话不是由警察打的。接到此类电话的市民应采取以下预防罪案措施:
警察声明。任何政府机构都不会通过电话获取个人信息;
切勿向任何人透露您的个人或网上银行详细信息和 OTP;
如果不小心泄露您的银行资料给咋骗分子, 请立刻终止交易和取消信用卡或扣賬卡。
