Impersonation Scam
My name is Suganth from India and working as an Engineer in one of the reputed company in Singapore. I got a call from the number +65 62382538 and they told the call is from high commission of India. They said, I have given the wrong information regarding my date of birth and it's a series offence in Singapore and I'm going to be arrested soon for the crime. And also they threatened they will inform to the employer and I will be deported immediately.  To avoid these criminal charges they asked me to pay S$10K as a fine. I had a doubt regarding the call and I contacted the Singapore police department for help and they confirmed it's a scam call. 

How i found its a scam call
1. Government never call people like this, i believe they will contact via official letter which will be posted to the registered address.
2. Government ( especially Singapore government ) never threaten people like this.
3. Initially scammer told me I'm going to arrested and later he threaten he will not do that if i pay the money he asks. I'm pretty sure government will not do this.
Singapore is a nice and safe place to like. So people don't fall into this kind of traps. Just ignore call from the scammers and inform to Singapore officials. Hope this helps.
