Scam alert: If you're asked to invest in S'pore-KL high-speed rail project, don't do it!

The latest scam to come up on the Internet involves fraudsters using the upcoming Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High-Speed Rail (HSR) project to dupe others into "investing" into it.

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has labelled this a scam and warned the public about it in a Facebook post yesterday.

"The scammers have presented fake contracts, bonds and construction drawings – claiming they were issued from either Singapore or Malaysia – to prey on unsuspecting victims," it wrote in the post.

"If anyone with such documents contacts you to request for a transfer of money, please make a police report immediately."
