Police have been alerted about more scams impersonating police officers to the public. This time around, fake emails from scammers impersonating the Traffic Police have been doing their rounds. In a press release, the police indicated that the email would typically claim that the recipient needed to pay a parking fine and appear in court. It would also provide a link to a website and a phone number to call to pay the "fine" via credit card.
Police have today clarified that no government agency will ask for payment through a telephone call, especially to a third party's bank account. The email address, website and phone number does not belong to the Singapore Police Force.
