Police Advisory On Phishing Scam Involving Alleged Traffic Offences

The Police have detected a new phishing scam variant where victims would receive an email from the ‘Division of Transportation’ alleging that they have committed a traffic offence. Victims may be asked to provide personal details or make payment after clicking the link in the email.

Members of the public should note that for traffic offences committed in Singapore, the owner of the vehicle will first be asked to furnish the driver’s particulars, before a Notice of Traffic Offence (NTO) is issued to the offending driver. The Traffic Police will not issue a digital NTO.

Members of the public are advised to follow these crime prevention measures:

  • Do not click on the URL links provided in unsolicited emails and text messages;

  • Always verify the authenticity of the information with the official website;

  • Never disclose your personal details, Internet banking details or one-time password (OTP) to anyone; and;

  • Report any fraudulent credit or debit card charges to your bank and cancel your card immediately.

If you have any information relating to such crimes, please call the Police Hotline at 1800-255-0000, or submit it online at www.police.gov.sg/iwitness.  If you require urgent Police assistance, please dial ‘999’.

For more information on scams, members of the public can visit www.scamalert.sg or call the Anti-Scam Hotline at 1800-722-6688. Join the ‘Spot the Signs, Stop the Crimes’ campaign at www.scamalert.sg/fight by signing up as an advocate to receive up-to-date messages and share them with your family and friends.  Together, we can help stop scams and prevent our loved ones from becoming the next victim.
