In this digital age when international calls can be made without spending a single cent, criminals no longer carry a knife to rob people.
Singapore Airlines has just released an advisory a few hours ago, mentioning that scammers have called victims to inform them that they’ve been selected for a lucky draw, or that they’ve won air tickets.
To add authenticity to the call, the scammers modified their caller id to reflect the airline’s number.
Singapore Airlines has also urged customers to send details on any suspected scams to them via this website, and to only log in to their KrisFlyer portal using their official website at www.singaporeair.com.
In addition, the national carrier also advised customers to exercise discretion when sending personal information to unverified sources, and not to trust websites or social media posts that might not come from the official source despite them looking similar to the real one.
Here’s the full post lest you can’t view it:
It has come to our attention that there are contests, emails and calls that claim to be from Singapore Airlines, which inform recipients of free air tickets, before proceeding to request for their personal data.
We advise customers to exercise discretion when revealing personal data to unverified sources. These websites, emails and calls should be verified if in doubt. Please send us details on our social media channels or via this link http://singaporeair.com/en_UK/feedback-enquiry/ and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
Singapore Airlines also wishes to advise customers to be cautious of social media posts and phishing websites that appear similar to our official website singaporeair.com.
