Around 250 representatives from law enforcement agencies, financial institutions, banks and cybersecurity organisations attended an anti-scam talk hosted by the Singapore Police Force (SPF) recently.

The talks were an effort to raise awareness on current financial scams, according to a statement from the Royal Brunei Police Force (RBPF).

Assistant Director of the SPF Anti-Scam Command Deputy Assistant Commissioner Aileen Yap delivered the briefing.

She said that while fraud cannot be completely eradicated, an effective strategy is to raise the cost of the operation for syndicates and reduce their profitability.

The RBPF said that the approach taken to combat scam must involve the whole of community or society.

Each party is urged to unite to combat the issue of financial scam through close cooperation with relevant authorities, said the RBPF.

The talks shared advice and best practices to combat scams as well as the SPF’s guidelines on how the organisation addreses criminal fraud.

RBPF Acting Director of Criminal Investigation Assistant Commissioner of Police Haji Azree bin Haji Manaf said he hoped the talk will help in addressing the growing number of scam cases.

He said all parties need to work together to raise awareness of financial scams, protect the community and ensure that the culprits are brought to justice.
