  1. to beat scam and spam.. https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/government-smses-will-show-govsg-as-the-sender-id-from-july-1 Government SMSes will show ‘gov.sg’ as the sender ID from July 1 SINGAPORE - From July 1, virtually all SMSes sent by government agencies in Singapore will have a single sender ID, as part of efforts to make it easier for the public to identify authentic government text messages. Such SMSes will show “gov.sg” as the sender ID instead of individual government agencies, such as “MOH” for the Ministry of Health or “Iras” for the Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore. Besides the gov.sg sender ID, every text message will begin with the full name of the agency that sent it and end with a note stating that it is an automated message sent by the Singapore Government, to indicate that recipients should not reply to it. Over a two-week period beginning on June 18, government agencies will gradually begin to send messages using the gov.sg sender ID, with all messages displaying the new ID from July 1. There are exceptions, though: Text messages from the Defence and Home Affairs ministries about national service matters and emergency services will have different sender IDs. The initiative was developed by Open Government Products (OGP), an independent division of the Government Technology Agency that builds technology for the public good. The effort aims to safeguard people here against government official impersonation scams.
  2. Let's start with this https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/courts-crime/ocbc-bank-customer-lost-120k-in-fake-text-message-scam-another-had-250k-stolen Young couple lost $120k in fake text message scam targeting OCBC Bank customers SINGAPORE - It took a man and his wife five years to save about $120,000, but in just 30 minutes, scammers using a fake text message stole the money they had kept in their OCBC Bank joint savings account. The couple in their 20s were among at least 469 people who reportedly fell victim to phishing scams involving OCBC in the last two weeks of December last year. The victims lost around $8.5 million in total. The husband works in the e-commerce sector, while his wife is in the hospitality industry. The man said he received the phishing message with a link at around noon on Dec 21 last year. A 38-year-old software engineer who fell prey to the same scam on Dec 28 told ST that he lost about $250,000 he had been saving since 2010. The father of a young child with special needs said the loss has been devastating, and he has been hiding it from his family. The bank said it has since halted its plans to phase out physical hardware tokens by the end of March this year, and has also stopped sending SMSes with links in them in the light of the spate of phishing incidents. Cyber security expert Anthony Lim, who is also a fellow at the Singapore University of Social Sciences, said scammers have advanced software enabling them to spoof telecommunications services and send SMSes that appear in the same threads used by real organisations. He added that even if victims did not provide their one-time passwords (OTPs), they would have sealed their fate when they entered other bank details on the fraudulent sites. "Once the victim unwittingly responds by entering the bank account credentials, the hackers' technologies can divert and capture a copy of the SMS OTP issued by the bank," he said.
  3. My kid phone number, tagged to me, was charged for over 200+ global SMS to the following numbers: 447937980269 886907444460 886907444429 886907444464 at the following time: 19-Jun-22 11PM to 20-Jun-22 at 10 AM. This was informed to me after I have sent enquiry to Singtel. But at that time, My kid was asleep in our room already and definitely not playing with his phone or anything. I also checked his phone for these 200+ messages to no avail. Unfortunately, Singtel was not able to do anything about it at all. And he definitely do not know anything about these global SMS. Who uses SMS nowadays anyway? I will be less surprised if it is some form of online purchases, but global SMS? Anyway, Singtel say they cannot help on this and just ask me to monitor the device messages. I suspect the SIM data being hacked but they also ignored this.
  4. https://www.independent.co.uk/tech/whatsapp-down-not-working-status-b2209835.html WhatsApp has broken, with users unable to send or receive messages. The world’s most popular messaging app appears to have stopped working, potentially affecting billions of users. The app would allow people to type messages to friends and then press send. But they then became stuck, never actually delivering. Time to go use those free SMSes.
  5. http://www.todayonline.com/singapore/jtc-puts-more-smart-waste-bins-alert-cleaners-sms-when-full SINGAPORE — After a successful pilot for solar-panelled “smart” trash bins, industrial property developer JTC has put up more than 40 of these bins around the island. The bins, called Bigbelly bins, have an internal compactor to crunch rubbish and can handle about five times more trash than another of a similar size. They have an enclosed design that prevents scavengers, pests and odours, and are connected wirelessly for easy monitoring and management. Once the bin is full, its sensors will detect and send, via 3G, email or text message alerts to the mobile phones of cleaners. Because they work on solar energy, the bins have no cabling. The solar panels power an internal battery that drives the compaction mechanism, internal sensors and the communication module. A fully charged battery can power the bin for about three months without sunlight.
  6. An SMS circulating with the message "Is this your photo?" and an attached link is currently circulating. Clicking the link will download and possibly install an APK called Photoviewer hosted by 6868android.com, which seems to be a variant of the ransomware virus that has become widespread in the US. Delete the SMS immediately if you receive it http://www.hardwarezone.com.sg/tech-news-psa-your-photo-sms-virus-circulating http://www.enigmasoftware.com/koler-android-ransomware-self-replicates-sms-disguised-photoviewer/

  9. Hi Guys, Just received a threatening SMS with the following message: Obviously I didn't call back. Anyone got this kind of message before? At first I thought someone use/steal my details to bluff Ah Long, but the more I look the more it doesn't seems Legit. I thought usually Ah Long threaten will say your name and NRIC to be more convincing? Looks like someone trying their luck to scam me by impersonating an Ah Long. I'm planning to report to police by I'm torned between the urgency to report online or report at my NPP.
