SINGAPORE - Energy company SP Services has warned against scam e-mails claiming to give refunds on utilities bills.

A spokesman said on Thursday: "These e-mail messages are not from SP Services. Recipients of such e-mails are advised not to respond to the e-mail, click on the hyperlink or provide their personal information."

He added that the company was first alerted to the scam emails in May. SP Services has received about 15 inquiries to check the authenticity of the e-mails. He also said the company would like to assure its customers that no unauthorised access has been made into its systems, and utility accounts and personal information in the SP Services' system have not been compromised.

The energy company has lodged a report against the scam. SP services can be contacted on 1800-222-2333 or spservices@singaporepower.com.sg
