Scam alert: Impersonation phone and video calls
Suspicious phone and video calls attempting to impersonate the Ministry of Manpower.
MOM has been alerted to incidents where members of public received unsolicited phone and video calls from scammers impersonating Ministry of Manpower.
The caller requested for information such as Work Permit number, passport details and a softcopy of the Work Permit card.
This is a scam. Members of public who receive such calls should:
- Be vigilant. If you receive such a call, ignore it.
- Not transfer any money to the caller, either via remittance agencies, banks or any other means.
- Not provide the caller with your personal information such as 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.
