The documents, they claimed, were issued from either Singapore or Malaysia.

"If anyone with such documents contacts you to request for a transfer of money, please make a police report immediately," said the LTA.

The 350km high-speed rail, which will cut travel time between the two cities to 90 minutes, is targeted to be operational by end-2026. – The Straits Times/Asia News Network
