Phishing emails that made me laugh

Got this interesting email on my Singnet mailbox. (Which I seldom use nowadays as it is flooded with spam)

The first paragraph looks real. For a moment, I really thought that it is indeed from Singnet. Then I saw the next 2 paragraph. Hmmmm…..

Funny, 1st paragraph, they warning users about phishing emails that ask for user email account and password. 3rd paragraph, they asking users for their email account and password. Contradiction leh.

Anyway, confirm phishing email. Cause nobody will ask you to send your password over email. So don’t bother replying to such email.
