Catholic Church of Singapore’s statement

Community ALERT: ‼️ Impersonator asking for Donations

Recently, an unknown person dressed in white clerical robes and a black cincture (cord) around his waist was seen asking for donations at The Church of Sts Peter and Paul. Church administrators suspect that the person in question was an impersonator attempting to scam churchgoers. A police report has since been filed by them.

We have also seen messages from people claiming to have seen the same/similar suspicious person in other parts of the island asking unsuspecting people for money.

In the event that you see someone who matches the description of the person-in-question in the vicinity of any of our churches, do not approach him. Instead, notify the church’s administrators immediately, especially if he is seen making advances towards others.

The faithful are reminded to be mindful, vigilant and be wary of strangers approaching them for cash donations.

Thank you.
