New ‘anti drug abuse contest’ emails are fake, warn Singapore Polytechnic and CNB
If you are unsure about the legitimacy of the sender, you can contact Singapore Polytechnic or CNB to verify the authenticity of the email.
An anti-drug abuse photo contest purported to be from the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) and Singapore Polytechnic (SP) is fake, both organisations said in a statement on Thursday (Feb 3).
The statement came after members of the public received emails that were seemingly from these organisations which contained multiple suspicious links.
Members of the public are advised against clicking these links, or any links from sources that they cannot verify as being from the official organisations. They should also not reply to the senders.
CNB’s official social media handles are @CNB.DrugFreeSG on Facebook and @cnb.drugfreesg on Instagram, while SP’s are @singaporepolytechnic on Facebook and @singaporepoly on Instagram and TikTok.
CNB’s official website is https://www.cnb.gov.sg, and CNB officers will only send emails from addresses ending with “@cnb.gov.sg”.
Similarly, SP’s official website is https://www.sp.edu.sg, and all of SP’s email addresses end with “@sp.edu.sg”.
If you cannot verify the legitimacy of a sender that claims to be CNB or SP, you can contact the official channels through CNB’s website or SP’s website..
