The police issued an advisory yesterday alerting the public to such scams, in which victims were cheated of at least S$40,000 (RM122,075) between July and October.
Victims received unsolicited calls from scammers through phone calls or mobile applications such as Viber.
The victims were then told they had won a prize in a lucky draw campaign organised by Changi Airport Group, and were asked to provide their credit or debit card details and bank account information to claim their prizes.
After unauthorised transactions were made on their accounts, the victims realised they had been cheated. — The Straits Times/ANN
