Singapore Police Force Scam Phone Calls

Police Advisory: Scam Phone Calls Impersonating Police. The Police have received numerous reports today from members of public who have received phone calls from a person claiming to be from the Singapore Police Force (SPF). The recipients of such calls would first hear an automated Mandarin voice message instructing them to enter a number. A Mandarin-speaking operator would then ask for their personal information, or inform them to proceed to the police station with their identification card or police officers would be dispatched to their residence.

The Police would like to clarify that these calls were not made by SPF officers. Such calls impersonating government officials are typical scammers’ tactics. Members of public are advised to take the following precautions when they receive calls from unknown parties:

  • Ignore such calls and the caller’s instructions.
  • Do not provide your name, identification number, passport details, contact details, bank account or credit card details. Such information is useful to criminals.

Members of public who have received such calls or have information related to such scams can submit the information online at www.police.gov.sg/iwitness or lodge a police report.
