The following is a letter by our reader, Wong CM.

I refer to the news about no Internet for public officers from June 2017. Mr said that was absolutely necessary because of the cyber-threats that we are facing. The said that has been hit by 16 waves of cyber-attacks since April last year to justify why the ban is necessary.
Just a few days ago, the police warned Singaporeans to protect themselves from DHL scams. The police said that Singaporeans have lost $4 million to such phone scammers in just three months, from March 2016. Won’t Singaporeans be absolutely safer if they disconnected all their phone to protect themselves from such scam ring?
