Impersonation Scam
At 29 June 2020, SGT 2.24pm. I received 1 call on my whatsapp.

The caller had the DBS paylah logo as his avatar with an Indian male on the line claiming to be from dbs paylah. i believe he was asking for my personal details as i could not make out what he was saying; so i hung up the call.

i received a second call less than 5 minutes later, with the same guy explaining that he is from dbs paylah. once again, as i could not fully understand what he was saying, i asked for him to reconfirm the details. he did not, and started pressing me for my nric and banking details; so i hung up a second time.

The caller mentioned something along the lines of my "Paylah" account was going to be deactivated after some time and he needed my NRIC to confirm if it was mine.

I hung up immediately.
