Scam alert: SMS from "Ministry of Men Power"
Suspicious SMS claiming to be from "Ministry of Men Power"
MOM has been alerted to cases where members of the public received SMS from scammers impersonating MOM.
The SMS would appear to be sent by “MOM”. The fake SMS from "Ministry of Men Power" informs recipients that their bank accounts would be “blocked” within 4 hours due to security reasons, and directs recipients to call the telephone number to verify their documents immediately.
This is a scam. Members of public who receive such messages should:
- Be vigilant. If you receive such messages, ignore it.
- Do not transfer any money to the caller, either via remittance services, bank transfers or any other means.
- Do not provide the caller with your personal information like name, identification number, passport, bank account or credit card details, and OTP.
We take such incidents seriously, as they undermine public trust in MOM. If you have information related to such incidents, call the anti-scam hotline at 1800 722 6688.
