Beware Changi Airport contest scam: Police

Police issued a crime advisory on Tuesday about a phone scam purporting to involve a competition by Changi Airport.Members of the public have received calls informing them that they had won return air tickets to Japan in a contest organised by the airport last year.

The caller asked for personal information such as passport details and mailing address on the pretext that it was necessary to claim the prize. But after the information was given, there was no further correspondence.

Changi Airport Group (CAG) has clarified that such calls are not authentic.

In official CAG competitions, winners are notified by telephone and e-mail, followed by an official letter. Anyone receiving such calls should contact the police.
