SINGAPORE - The Ministry of Manpower (MOM) has lodged a police report over another fake website disguised as the ministry's, even carrying its logo.

The fake site - - is a near replica of Manpower Ministry's actual site, and it has since informed the police.

"Fake websites surface from time to time, and we'd like to remind members of the public to only use the official MOM website at for all informational and transactional needs concerning MOM matters," said the ministry in a Facebook post on Thursday afternoon.

Earlier this month on May 5, another fake MOM site - - was taken down following investigations. MOM assured then that access to the official MOM website remained unaffected and no data had been compromised.
