SINGAPORE: There has been a spike in the number of scam cases involving fake cash giveaways on social media, said the police on Wednesday (Apr 8), adding that there had been at least 13 reports lodged since December last year.

Scammers would use social media platforms like Facebook to advertise the giveaways, instructing victims to share their Internet banking information and one-time passwords so they could make unauthorised and fraudulent transactions using the victims' bank accounts.
