SINGAPORE - The Infocomm Development Authority (IDA) has warned SingPass users against falling prey to a phishing email which has apparently been sent to some people.
Phishing is a fraudulent process whereby hackers attempt to get users to divulge their personal information such as their user identities, passwords, and credit card details.
The email is titled "SingPass account security info verification" and appears to be sent from "SingPass Government" at the address firstname.lastname@example.org. It informs users that their SingPass PINs have been suspended and tells them to click on a link to confirm their email addresses.
The IDA clarified in a Facebook post today that the SingPass is not the sender, and advises users to delete the email and to contact SingPass at email@example.com.
