It has been brought to the public’s attention that the number of scamming cases in Singapore across most industries has spiked since most business operations have adopted a primarily Work From Home policy.
Like many of you, Immigration@SG LLP (IASG) has been continuously serving our clients remotely from home as well. This includes addressing all queries, preparation of documents and seeing applications through to submission, without compromising on the quality of work.
To verify if you are dealing with an actual staff of IASG, please :
- Call our Hotline at +65 6493 1830
- Verify Staff’s Credentials (Name / Contact credentials / Email)
I believe these addresses some of the immediate concerns you may have. We would like to assure you that Immigration@SG’s promise to all our clients will be to continue to strive to remain available, and see their PR and Citizenship applications through.
Tips to Avoid Being Scammed:
- Check that the phone number and website of the third party are credible. Calls from Singapore numbers do not have the +65 country code shown on the ID caller. Do not pick up calls with a + sign in their number.
- Ask for specific details of where they got your contact from.
- Never give out any personal information to strangers. Scammers may ask you leading questions to get you to reveal your personal information. Do not answer these questions.
- Verify with authorities and companies they claim to be from. Report to the authorities if someone claims to be calling from a particular government agency such as the ICA. There are fraudulent immigration consultants as well, so please make sure you do thorough research on the company that they represent.
- Never transfer money if you feel fearful and/or doubtful. Scammers tend to play on your emotions and create fear, worry, panic, and such to force you to transfer money to their account.
Till then, we urge all to keep safe. Be healthy. Secure your future.
