Police warn of fake SPF letters sent by fictitious officer

The Singapore Police Force (SPF) released an advisory on Wednesday (Dec 5) to warn the public about fake letters purportedly sent by a police officer.

The police said they are aware of reports lodged by members of the public who have received letters asking them to report to a police station on a specific date to assist in the investigations of an offence.

The letters were signed off by a police officer from a police division, where the name of the officer was found to be fictitious.

"These letters were not issued by the police," the advisory said.

"The reports of these letters have been classified as Intentional Harassment under Section 3(2) of the Protection from Harassment Act (POHA) and investigations are ongoing."

The police added that if in doubt, members of the public may verify the authenticity of such letters by contacting the respective Police divisions (www.police.gov.sg/content/contact-us).
