AGC issues advisory over scam letter using its letterhead

SINGAPORE: The Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) on Wednesday (Oct 25) alerted members of the public to a scam letter which bore its letterhead.

The letter, which was received by an individual overseas, asked its recipient to pay a fee relating to a suspected money laundering matter.

It was signed by someone claiming to be a senior state counsel from AGC.

“This letter is a fake and was not sent by AGC, it said in its advisory, adding that AGC does not request members of the public to transfer money to third-party accounts.

“The letter also contains several typographical and grammatical errors, which are tell-tale signs that the letter is not authentic.”
