In this digital age, website links are a legitimate means for the Government to point citizens to useful services and information.
However, with the recent rise in scam or phishing attempts, it has become more important than ever before to verify links in emails, SMSes or WhatsApp messages before clicking.
To ensure that a link genuinely leads to the CPF website or another Government website, always check that the domain ends with “.gov.sg”.
A domain forms the first part of a URL. If a “https://” prefix is included in the URL, the domain comes immediately after it.
Is this link legitimate?
You may have received an SMS notifying you that your CPF Yearly Statement of Account is ready for viewing at cpf.gov.sg/latestysoasms.
You may have also received separate WhatsApp messages advising you not to click on the link because it is a scam.
Which of these messages should you trust?
Based on the “.gov.sg” rule, the link is actually legitimate and it is safe for you to click on it.
After you’ve clicked through to the webpage, please be extra vigilant before providing any sensitive information such as personal particulars or account login details. Look out for valid encryption certificates by checking for the green lock in the browser’s address bar.
How ready are you to detect phishing links?
