Phishing Scam Impersonation Scam
A female called my mobile number indicating that she's calling from Singtel maintenance/cyber SECURITY claiming that there are SUSPICIOUS/UNAUTHORIZED persons using my singtel internet connection and need to remove it immediately. saying that my credit card/bank details might be compromised and they cant fix it on their end. sounded like indian national. requested that i key in this certain ID to check. when asked, she even provided the singtel number 6562351688 to call to confirm that this call was genuine after checking with people around her. i also asked why is she calling from from such a "weird" number, her reply was that this a an internet call so that's why it's like that. kept saying that this is urgent that's why they need to call you directly.

Hung up after I said I would call singtel directly to confirm.
