The police are advising everyone to be vigilant against potential scams linked to the Presidential Election.
Scammers may impersonate government officials or election candidates to solicit banking and personal information such as banking credentials and One-Time Passwords (OTPs) via SMS or unsolicited phone calls or in-app calls on WhatsApp.
They may also use the display photos of the people they are impersonating to perpetrate scams, which may include soliciting bank transfers.
For example, someone impersonated presidential candidate Tan Kin Lian using a fake donation page created to look almost exactly like Mr Tan's actual donation page.
The difference is that the fake page has the name “Tan Kok Liang” and a QR code.
On Friday (Aug 25), Mr Tan Kin Lian told the media during a walkabout at Geylang Serai Market and Food Centre that at least 20 people have alerted him to scams targeting his supporters, reported The Straits Times.
You are advised by the police not to send or transfer money to anyone without verification and to never share their banking credentials, including OTPs with anyone.
Besides Mr Tan, the other two presidential candidates are Mr Tharman Shanmugaratnam and Mr Ng Kok Song.
Polling Day will be on Friday (Sept 1).
