Be wary of phishing or scam attempts. URA will NOT ask for personal information relating to your accounts, such as your Singpass ID/password or banking ID/password. If an SMS or email contains a URL, make sure that it ends with “” before clicking on it. Use our feedback form to report any suspicious communications supposedly from URA.

We at URA are committed to protecting you from phishing scams and are therefore implementing additional measures to guard you from online fraud.

With immediate effect, URA will not send SMSes to Qualified Persons (QPs)/property owners on payment matters related to development applications (e.g. processing fees, development charge) until further notice. URA will also not send SMSes asking for sensitive bank account information to be provided. If you receive such an SMS that claims to be sent by URA, please contact us immediately to verify its authenticity, so that the necessary follow-up action can be taken.

We also wish to remind QPs/property owners to be vigilant when making payment to URA via bank transfers. In particular, please ensure that fund transfers are made only to the official URA bank account, which you can verify on the URA website at Do notify us immediately if you receive emails, notices etc. claiming to be from URA requesting for funds to be transferred to an unknown bank account that is not listed on the URA website.

Let us work together to prevent such scams!
