Singapore Police Force (SPF) has announced that it is aware of reports lodged by members of the public who have received phone calls purportedly from a Traffic Police officer.
SPF alerted members of the public that in these cases, the call recipients were informed that a relative of their neighbour had been involved in a road traffic accident.
“The call recipients were then asked to inform their neighbour to contact the Traffic Police,” it added.
The Police stated that it would like to clarify that these calls were not made by Traffic Police officers.
If in doubt, The Police advised members of the public to verify the authenticity of such calls by calling the Police hotline at 1800-255 0000.
“Members of the public are encouraged to share this advisory with family and friends,” the Police added.
