[SCAM ADVISORY] [Public advisory on abuse of ‘National Day Name & Win Contest’ by scammers impersonating CP-Meiji Singapore Facebook page] On Monday, 31 August 2020, CP-Meiji Singapore was alerted to cases of Facebook users receiving unsolicited interactions from a Facebook account impersonating CP-Meiji Singapore Facebook page to phish for data. The interactions, by an account under the name ‘CP-MeijiSingapore’, involve getting members of Facebook users to accept a Friend Request; to take part in a version of CP-Meiji Singapore Facebook page’s ‘National Day Name & Win Contest’ by submitting personal and credit card information to an unverified external link; or by sending personal messages to individual Facebook users to take part in said contest by responding to a series of questions and registering personal information via the same link. CP-Meiji Singapore only operates on Facebook via its official Facebook Business Page and does not send unsolicited personal messages to Facebook users or request personal and credit card information from Facebook users to qualify for any online contests hosted on CP-Meiji Singapore Facebook page. Where information may need to be collected for the purposes of verifying winners during prize collection, we closely comply with local Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA) regulations and will not request in any instance a Facebook user’s personal details such as One-Time Password (OTP) or credit card information. CP-Meiji Singapore takes such impersonation and phishing incidents seriously. If you are unsure if a post or message you see from us is legitimate, do request for clarification through our feedback channels 6861 0717 (Phone) email@example.com (E-mail). Do not do so through the social media platform as the account may have been taken over by scammers.
