POLICE ADVISORY ON SMSES CLAIMING KIDNAP OF LOVED ONES

The Police have received numerous reports from members of the public informing that they have received SMSes (Short Message Service) citing their loved ones had been kidnapped. The SMSes also asked for money to be transferred to a bank account to ensure the safety of their loved ones.

Members of the public are advised to adopt the following measures:

a. Remain calm and do not transfer any money as instructed by the SMSes;
b. Contact your loved one immediately to confirm their safety;
c. Do not reply to the SMS. Block and report the number as spam.

If you wish to provide any information relating to such cases, please call the Police hotline at 1800-255-0000, or submit information online at www.police.gov.sg/iwitness. Please dial ‘999’ if you require urgent Police assistance.
