Embassy of The Republic of Singapore - Manila


May 2015


The Embassy of the Republic of Singapore in Manila has been alerted to a possible scam operation targeting Singaporeans by an individual or group masquerading as Singaporeans claiming to require financial assistance for his/her Singaporean relatives in the Philippines.  The modus operandi of the scam involves an individual who seeks financial help via social media platforms usually on the pretext of assisting a close relative who has met with an unfortunate incident in the Philippines.  The Embassy wishes to inform Singaporeans to be wary of such scams.


Singaporeans who have received such approaches should take the following steps:

  1. Do not transfer any money or provide credit card details.
  2. Check with the Singapore Embassy in Manila via e-mail at singemb_mnl@mfa.sg to verify the authenticity of the case.
