SINGAPORE — Member of Parliament Zainal Sapari, of Pasir Ris-Punggol GRC, has warned of an imposter trying to scam people via Facebook.
“An unknown person has created a scam Facebook page using my name and photo,” Mr Zainal wrote in a Facebook post this afternoon (Nov 11). “He may have send you a personal message to be friends and follow up with a message about UN funding that I have received.”
The imposter would then try to direct unsuspecting victims to click on an external link, where they could supposedly register to receive cash from the United Nations Development Programme as well.
The fake Facebook account carried Mr Zainal’s name and his most recent profile photo. Mr Zainal has since changed his profile picture as of 6pm today.
