Charity event cancelled after police say it needs permit for 'politicising a social cause'

SINGAPORE - A fundraiser for cardboard collectors to be held on Saturday (Dec 14) has been cancelled, said its organisers on Friday evening. The five-hour event was to have involved at least four opposition parties, said non-profit group Happy People Helping People in a Facebook post. The reason for the cancellation is that «the police did not want us to do this without a permit», the group added. Earlier on Friday, the police had said the event would require a permit as its organisers had politicised a social cause. It pointed out in its statement that the event - titled A Mile In Their Shoes - 'Leaders of Singapore' Fundraiser Special - had been assessed to be a public assembly and, hence, would need a permit under the Public Order Act. This is because «the event goes beyond simply helping cardboard collectors, and appears to be politicising a social cause», it added. The group had said in a Facebook post on Thursday that representatives from four political parties would take part in the fundraiser: the Singapore Democratic Party, Progress Singapore Party, Reform Party and the People's Power Party.

Record sum of $18.8m lost to China officials impersonation scams this year

SINGAPORE - The year has not ended and there has already been more money lost to cheats in more cases of scams involving the impersonation of China officials compared to last year and the year before. The police said on Friday (Dec 13) that from January to November, people were cheated of at least $18.8 million in at least 400 cases of such scams. This figure is up from 302 cases in 2018, when about $12.7 million was lost to scammers, and about $12.8 million in 188 cases in 2017. From August to November alone this year, at least $10.8 million was lost to scammers in 242 cases. The police said these crimes involved people impersonating staff from courier companies, telecommunications service providers, or officers from government organisations. The scammers would trick victims by claiming that a mobile number registered in their name was involved in a crime; that a parcel under their name containing illegal goods was detained; that there was a pending case in court against them; or that they had committed a criminal offence and were required to assist in investigations.

Love, Bonito customers' data breached, credit card details exposed, watchdog investigating

SINGAPORE - Singapore's privacy watchdog is investigating a data breach involving home-grown fashion label Love, Bonito, after it reported that its online users' data had been compromised. On Friday (Dec 13), the retailer, which has three stores in Singapore, sent an e-mail to its online customers telling them that the data breach had been confirmed on Tuesday and a malicious code had been added to its e-commerce website. The malicious code has since been removed. In the e-mail, Love, Bonito's co-founder Rachel Lim said that based on the company's investigations, some of its customers' personal information may have been exposed, including credit card numbers, expiry dates and CVVs, full names, shipping addresses, order details and phone numbers. The e-mail did not say how many people were affected by the breach. Responding to queries from The Straits Times about how it was alerted to the breach, a company spokesman apologised and said that a «small number» of its customers, were affected.
