SINGAPORE: Police have received several reports of emails being sent using the "NTUC FairPrice" name.
Recipients were informed they had been selected for a chance to win shopping vouchers from NTUC and they were to provide their particulars for verification.
NTUC FairPrice has clarified that such emails are not authentic and it is not running any email or phone contests currently.
It added winners of actual contests or lucky draws organised by NTUC FairPrice are notified by post or through advertisements.
Police say scammers have employed a similar ploy in other cases, by claiming they were staff of a well-established courier company, for phishing purposes.
Police remind members of the public to be wary of such emails or phone calls.
