It seems like there are folks receiving emails from "IRAS" that the Singapore Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore is giving out cash rewards for tax payers. Don't believe it as it is a email scam.

The Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore (IRAS) has made a police report against a scam email with the subject title “IRAS Reward”.

Cautioning members of the public, IRAS said today (Aug 20) that the email — which asks recipients to click on an attached link to fill in a form to claim cash rewards — and its associated website are scams.
”Members of the public should not respond to the email, click on its hyperlink or provide their particulars,” said IRAS.
There are couple of tell tale signs that this email is too good to be true.
First of all, IRAS won't give out money so easily. Even if they decided to, this is a Singapore Government agency and they would have send you by snail mail instead of email.  Hitting the send button is still not considered proof of delivery in Singapore laws, putting the snail mail into a letter box is considered as proof of delivery. 
The email address from the recipient is also dubious. 
Finally, if you need to enter details, especially bank details, at the real IRAS website, there will be a requirement to log in to SingPass first. 
Unfortunately, the greed for easy money often clouds better judgement. Warn your family members and friends about this email scam.
