These scammers may request for victims' credentials such as Krisflyer login details which can be used to access their online accounts.

They may use caller IDs that imitate the airline's official telephone numbers or have websites that appear similar to the official SIA website.

SIA advises members of the public to exercise discretion when sharing their personal data, to verify websites, emails and calls if they are in doubt, and report scams via the airline's website.
