SINGAPORE: There’s been an erroneous text message going around, prompting national servicemen (NSmen) to apply for the commemorative NS50 PAssion Card, but the card provider clarified on Friday (Jun 9) that it did not send the SMS.
The message claimed that the card comes with a S$50 stored value, and NSmen were asked to SMS their identity card number in order to receive their card.
“We would like to clarify that the commemorative NS50 PAssion Card does not contain any stored value,” said the card provider in a Facebook post.
The number, however, is a legitimate one run by the People’s Association to register for the card, it told Channel NewsAsia.
