    Hi, I would like to share my experience regarding this fake SMS from SingPost.

    I ordered an item from carousel 03 Jul 2020 as normal mail, however, due to COVID-19 or upcoming elections my parcel has been delayed till now. I received an SMS from INFOSMS on 11 Jul 2020.

    Upon clicking the hyperlink I was redirected to a website that looks like SingPost website. I was asked to pay SGD1.67 to have it delivered. I found it suspicious because I already paid the seller to ship it as a normal mail, I know there is no tracking number for normal mail post.

    I was redirected again to another website with my personal details to fill up and the amount required to pay changed to 3,45 SGD.

    Please help do something about this, share it so other people become aware. I'm already upset my parcel is delayed and now this. Good thing I didn't fall for this, I' ve been shopping online many times this is the first time it happened to me.

    Regards,

    KRISTINE
