WorldFirst Disclaimer Policies
At WorldFirst, the security of your money is our highest priority and we do our utmost to ensure that your money is safe from fraud.

Before authorising a payment from your WorldFirst account, we recommend you make sure you're not sending money:
- to someone you don't know
- to prove availability of funds to someone
- to claim an inheritance or winnings from the lottery
- to someone claiming to be a relative and in need of funds
- to a person you met online and who is in need of funds
- to pay for unexpected taxes
- to claim the sale of shares from a previous investment
Please visit our Online Security page to familiarise yourself with common ways that fraudsters will use to try and get hold of your personal information.
Equally, we advise taking some time to consult the external resources at the bottom of this page to learn more about what advice leading financial crime prevention organisations in Singapore are offering.

- Your relationship manager (this information can be found on the homepage of your WorldFirst Account)
- One of the relevant phone numbers listed on worldfirst.com/sg/help-support/contact-us/
