Singapore Data Privacy Real Or BS?

These days, I received many calls from credit card and insurance companies, I believed I did not receive much of these calls until recently. DBS Bank and Income are obvious because my bank account is with DBS and all of us are forced to be with Income due to CPF.

The agents would call and beat around the bush and I kept pressing just be straight forward after few attempts. They said, “I am here to help you review your policy or need!” The next moment, the line went dead. LOL

My suspicions is that all our banking and personal information were given or sold to agencies or internally for their agents to go after. So Singapore keeps bullshixxing us about data privacy. Why is it now becoming so obvious?

Then I also had tonnes of scam calls from PRC operated MOH and Indians SPF so regularly, a few times a week. Where did these people get their information from?

Our country is in a mess honestly, we are not in safe environment anymore, we also have become a scam haven. And we are always told how safe is this country blah blah and our laws are so freaking strict.

Do you agree?

  • opposition dude:

    Those working for the various companies like Singtel and the various banks are part of a syndicate. The thing about these syndicates is that they are far smarter than the authorities so they know how to stay undetected when customer data has been passed to them.

    And with sooooo many non Singaporeans working for these companies who is actually keeping an eye on these people who have access to all these personal information? No one, that’s who.

    And have you noticed that DBS bank has had quite a number of system failures in the last few years alone? Have you not wondered why these failures are happening so regularly compared to in the past? I’m sure you know why lah so no need to state the obvious.

  • myfirstscrew:

    Reported by yahoo news, over 300+ in Singapore investigated for scams. Who are these scammers? I believe most are global talents imported by PAPPY!!!

    Singapore talks bs about privacy but their banks are quietly using our information to upsell to their agents and business partners.

    Not to mentioned most information leaks were done by foreign born aka new citizens or PRs!!!

    We are fuxxed!

    In agreement with writer. Why did we change systems that had better safeguards for daily hacks and scams? It seems like once again the govt. and banks implement changes without checks and using us as guinea pigs to bear all loss to tweak their systems.

  • Pests Aplenty Party:

    I can’t agree more with Stanford.

    After I opened a fixed deposit account with an investment and finance company, though in the form I disapprove to have my information shared, the next few days I received calls from people not in my phone record. Of coz I rejected all them and they stopped calling after some time.

    Every businesses also have so many foreign Tan, Dick and Tamby, how still to have privacy in our country?

  • In the past, employees of Telco in China used to sell such information to telemarketers, cons, etc.

    But since the citizen privacy act (公民隐私) was enacted making it a criminal offense, such incidents have been reduced to practically zero, because the penalty for doing so is jail and/or very high fine, no longer worth it. Picture this, if my wife has a credit card that is overdue, the bank CANNOT call me (even if I am the emergency contact) to inform me about the overdue, at most ask me to pass a message to her to contact the bank. If the employee of the bank inform me of the overdue, then it is a criminal offense punishable with a heavy fine or up to 3 years jail, and the bank will be heavilly fined.

    Watch this for a sample: https://www.bilibili.com/video/BV1hq4y1J7ai/?spm_id_from=333.337.search-card.all.click

    One online finance company (360) was recently fined RMB 96 million for allowing their debt collectors to use now-illegal tactics, i.e. contacting the debtor’s family members “to help pay their debt”, among other things. Their debt collectors were also jailed between 6 months to 3 years.

    Watch this very cute video for an idea of how debt collectors are being ‘bullied’ after the privacy act came into effect: https://www.bilibili.com/video/BV1VF411T7H6/?spm_id_from=333.337.search-card.all.click and taken care of: https://www.bilibili.com/video/BV1Ci4y1d7W6/?spm_id_from=333.337.search-card.all.click when they used private information without the debtor’s expressed consent.

    Anyway, coming back to the point, if your information has been compromised, it is very likely that it came from the FT Telco staff, since they can no longer do it in their home country, they ply their trade in Sinkieland since the party no hue no care no hear no see.

  • Outsource:

    When you outsource everything to India, they know all your IPs,
    how you configure your securities.
    How you code.
    Once they leave the companies, good luck….
    Knowledge on how to retrieve information from your companies
    make easy.!!

  • Understand DBA Role:

    Database Administrator (DBA) has all the access rights to view, download your personal information from databases. And many DBAs are foreign from especially very poor, backward countries. They can sell each personal information in black market for up to about USD1.

    Wonder why millions of personal information records leaked in various local companies/bodies? It’s likely the work of DBA rather than attacks from the internet because a simple click by DBA will do the work .

    Therefore, DBA role must be Singapore born Singaporean. Likewise, most cybersecurity professionals especially those involved in government systems.

    The alarming number of scammers in Singapore and how blatant they are operating in Singapore is telling us that our govt standard has deteriorated into third world standard.

    They keep saying about privacy but now we are more exposed than in the past, what does this mean?

    And yet, nothing has been done to improve, despite the millions of global foreigners being imported, a huge number are IT. And if these so called global talents needed to push Singapore ahead, we could conclude Singapore has failed.

    And yet minister TSL is shouting we need global talents every week, to create jobs for Singaporeans. Do you think PAPPY ministers are good for nothing, and all the more, we should aim to vote many out to save our country money.

    Do you agree?

    @knnn
    This is the PAP mode of operations.At first they said ageing population so need Foreigners.Next they said, our own graduates must be reskilled so they need Foreign Talent.Since this word has been over used,it is now Global Talent. Common denominator is, they are continuing to over crowd a 728sq.m island which has no natural resources,with third world foreigners. Remember also all the various shields,the many funds etc that are no more and have been replaced.

    It reflects badly on the village chief, his deputy and bunch of lackey chiefs for not being able to raise masses of village talents at global levels with their million dollar salaries.

    Exactly.

    Recent pty cooling measures WERE A RESULT of PAP corruption of mis use of labour to built flats which were drastically affected BY POOR PLANNING and EXECUTION – of OVER RELIANCE on Foreign workers to DO EVERYTHING for the PAP Administration esp those tt PAP Administration hopes to have results of quick turnaround that provides them with money to pay their own salaries quickly enough.

    Why is it NO INDEPENDENT MEDIA to analyse, report of these MASSIVE PAP shortcomings AND HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE.

    Reuters RECENTLY had a news report of SG, very rare in the WHOLE WORLD, going BIG on use of CONSTRUCTION robots – WTF? Why building of flats still slow – that causes demand to shoot sky high?

    Millions of dollars of Military Equipment OPENED to PRC for inspection for many 100s of hours – what privacy when National Military Secrets ARE trashed by the PAP Administration as open items to foreign spies.
