Singapore’s National Crime Prevention Council gets on Animal Crossing hype for scam advisory

In case you haven’t noticed, 2020 has proven to be a very unusual year so far. 

It’s clear that we have no idea how bizarre it can get — including how Singapore’s National Crime Prevention Council (NCPC) are using a virtual asset in a popular video game to illustrate the dangers of online scams. 

As it turns out, the local non-profit organisation dedicated to public awareness about potential crimes is very much aware of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, the Nintendo Switch idyllic life simulator that has blown up worldwide during a deadly global pandemic. 

But NCPC isn’t that far off the mark though. In a time when citizens shelter in place during the circuit breaker, they’ve retreated online for entertainment and shopping. So it would be a ripe time to warn folks not to fall for e-commerce scammers by drawing a close association with turnips, the best item in the game to trade in.
