The police have warned members of the public to beware of a new variant of phishing scam involving fake Grab advertisements and other fake deals.
In a news release on Wednesday (Oct 28), the police said that victims would come across a fake advertisement on Facebook or Instagram, offering cheap iPhone deals or Grab coupons.
After clicking on the URL link embedded in the fake advertisements, the victims would be directed to a fake Grab website where they are required to provide their mobile phone number and One-Time Passwords (OTPs).
Most of the victims only realised that they have been scammed when they discovered unauthorised transactions in their GrabPay accounts.
"Grab has confirmed that they did not push out such advertisements," added the police.
Members of the public are advised to adopt these crime prevention measures:
