Impersonation Scam

Received a call at 10:44 AM on 24/2/24 claiming to be from the Singapore Police Force, requesting verification of my WhatsApp number. The caller threatened jail if not verified, insisting I pick up his video call to verify his identity. Initially hesitant, I eventually complied and saw his ID card with him in a Singapore Police Force uniform.

He escalated the situation, threatening with a gun and inquiring about another SIM card in my phone. I ended the call, citing my husband outside and an unwell child, feeling threatened by his demeanor.

Subsequently, I contacted 999, and they confirmed it as a scam call originating from +65 8195 0093.
