All members are advised that once again fraudulent messages are being sent out using Meetup com as the means. These messages run along the lines of "I am dying (or some relative, usually husband or father has died) and wish to leave you the sum of $XXX million to be invested in a good cause, etc etc" or "You/your email have won $XXX amt through some lottery or the other". I am amazed that at this day and age these fraudsters still think that we are so gullible as to fall for their tricks, but then I suppose there are always stupid/greedy/naive people out there who would do so! I would like to think that our members are more sophisticated than that, but nevertheless I think a warning is timely. I have reported the senders of these messages to Meetup com for them to action it, but if any of you get any such messages, please report them to [address removed], making sure that you reproduce as much info as possible (user name, content of communication).
Platform for returnees to Singapore, either temporary or permanent. Let us meet up for coffee or meals and discuss our experiences and networking - we have a wealth of talent and experience in our midst and it should be put to productive use! We can also help with advice to Singaporeans preparing to leave the country for the first time, whether for studies, work or family reasons, and put them in touch with OS in the countries they are leaving for.
OS and former Singaporeans in other countries who wish to maintain contact with developments back in Singapore and who may be planning trips back are also welcomed to join.
Emails to the organisers: if you wish to write emails to us, please do NOT tick the Hide your Email Address box. It is much easier for us to reply to you if we have an email address to do so (rather than having to search through several hundred names for your membership entry). Messages sent without a valid reply address will not be answered.
Message from San: I am the International Organiser for this group and I am based in the UK. If any of you have any queries about events in Singapore PLEASE refer them to the co-organiser or Event Host who has organised the function and NOT to me, as often I do not know anything about the local circumstances.
