Marine Parade NPC Pokes Fun At Manchester United Fans With Anti-Scam Campaign

Most football fans were glued to their screens on Sunday (24 Oct) when Liverpool Football Club and Manchester United clashed on the pitch. When the scoreline eventually finished 5 goals to nothing for the Scousers, the Reds took to social media to gloat about the win.

While most fans did their best to carry on the ‘tradition’ of spinning puns from such major scorelines, a police station in Singapore decided to join the fun too.

Posted less than 24 hours after the one-sided match, the post leveraged on the score by suggesting 5 steps to prevent 0 scams.

The 5 ways include:

  • Always verify the authenticity of information with an official website or source
  • Never give your One-Time Password (OTP) to anyone
  • Do not click on URL links provided in unsolicited emails and text messages
  • Never send money to strangers or anyone you have not met in person before
  • Be wary of items or services or jobs that seem too good to be true

The post ends with assurances from Marine Parade NPC that lawbreakers will be taken care of.

Some Manchester United fans irate over Facebook post

Though likely done in jest, the post received divisive reactions in its comments section.

Speaker of Parliament Tan Chuan-Jin, who’s a Liverpool fan, commended Marine Parade NPC for dishing out great advice.

However, another netizen, presumably a Manchester United fan, didn’t see the funny side to things and labelled the post distasteful.

Facebook post was just some harmless banter

When it comes to footballing matters, it would sometimes bring up our tribalistic tendencies.

Hopefully, the message was well received and at the end of the day, beyond the harmless banter.
