In a media release on Friday (Jan 24), SkillsFuture Singapore said it discovered that about 4,400 people had submitted false claims, effectively encashing their SkillsFuture credit without attending any courses.
The majority – more than two-thirds – of the claims were submitted towards the end of January 2017, and were picked up by its data analytics system.
SkillsFuture Singapore said it has issued letters to these individuals to recover the money, which totals about S$2.2 million.
