Please take note of fake Singapore Police Force websites that are out to scam. Fake SPF websites have been around since 2017 or earlier, as we have reported this issue over 7 times in the past two years.
The real police website will never seek the public to key in personal information or credit card information.
There have been cases of fake SPF website asking to pay large sums of money as a “fine”. Or use the name of SPF to scare people.
