Singapore — Fake letters offering jobs at Singapore General Hospital (SGH) have been circulating in India.

These letters offer the position of store keeper and a monthly salary of S$1512.

In a Facebook post on Tuesday (Apr 20), SGH alerted against the scam.

It wrote: “Please be warned that the Hospital did not issue such letters. The Hospital does not have recruitment office or agent overseas”.

In poor English, the letters also promise those hired “All of benefits as outlined in the Singapore general hospital guidelines which will be provide with contract”.
