The Singapore Police Force has used a new technique to catch viewers attention on the Anti-Scam advisory that they have recently put up.
The clever team behind the advertisement used a Toto Ticket to get their message of Anti-scam across to the masses.
In their post, they used the bolded caption ‘Here is the winning number’ to gain attention, before putting the message across that scammers chooses their victims just like how people choose their lottery numbers.
They also asked people to be vigilant to such scams and not end up being the ‘winning ticket’ for these scammers.
They ended of the post by urging people to call the anti-scam hotline or go to scamalert.sg to learn more about such scams.
The hotline number is also included in the pictorials of the post and the number is 1800-722-6688.
Calls to this number are toll free and they are available on weekdays from 9am to 5pm with the exception of public holidays.
Here is the post by the Singapore Police Force
