It has come to the attention of the Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB) that some person/s had been impersonating a CNB officer and had messaged others via WhatsApp messages, informing them that they ‘have cases with CNB’ and attempting to request for money.
CNB will be working with the Singapore Police Force to investigate into the incidents.
CNB would like to advise the public that CNB officers are not allowed to request for any favours in money or in kind, nor to threaten any person to provide monetary favours in order to ‘facilitate a case’. Anyone who suspects that he/she has been a victim of such pranks or attempts to dishonestly appropriate money are advised to contact CNB at 1800-325-6666 or email CNB_Feedback@cnb.gov.sg to report their suspicions.
