SINGAPORE - The Singapore Accountancy Commission (SAC) has issued a notice to inform the public to exercise caution if they receive email messages purportedly sent from Mr Uantchern Loh with the subject line 'SAC Violation Notice'.

In a press release, the SAC said these emails did not originate from the SAC and were not sent by the Chief Executive of the SAC, Mr Uantchern Loh. The email hoax was sent from a non-existent email address - uantchern.loh@sac.gov.sg - which is different from the official email addresses of the SAC staff.

SAC said that it takes a serious view of this attempt to impersonate the Chief Executive of SAC and are conducting an investigation. A police report has also been filed.

They also apologised for any inconvenience caused and have requested for the public to contact them for clarifications on this incident.
