What if I get fraud with the bank while I'm away from Singapore.

I am on a vacation far from singapore, then suddenly I logged in on a fake bank site to view my account. I want to enjoy my vacation but next thing I see is that my account has been zeroed. As I am away from home, I will be panicking. All my savings and loans and information are there. So I need to ensure that everything is alright.

    Singapore has one of the top securest banks in the world. You can guarantee that if you have been hacked or fraud, The bank will ensure to help you in your case. The reputation of the bank is on the line here so they will be willing to help you in that. Before inputing your information (username and password) on the site, check if it is real. If it is an app, you can check the ratings and the creator of the app is really the bank/company.

Providing consumers heavy incentives to make large deposits into their accounts

The Standard Chartered e$aver Savings Account is currently offering a promotion that significantly boosts its value by providing consumers heavy incentives to make large deposits into their accounts, as any incremental increases in their balance from month-to-month will earn 1.70% p.a. These funds must be credited to outside source, rather than transferred within the Standard Chartered banking system, and this bonus applies to the increase only and not to the entire balance.

The first S$50,000 balance earns at 0.1875% p.a. interest

Maybank Passbook Savings Account is remarkably simple in terms of its interest rates structure, but has a few unique features when considering eligibility. To begin with, savings earn interest according to tiers within the balance. In other words, the first S$50,000 of a balance earns at 0.1875% p.a. interest, and any remaining balance beyond S$50,000 earns 0.25% p.a. In terms of eligibility, that may be a bit odd.

Good for new to workforce adult with minimal saving.

The interest is quite low on this card as compared with other saving plan. It deducts 2 dollars per month on your account balance if it is lower than $500. The interest rate is minimal and there are no incentive to save each month. Super good account as they do not need initial deposit to open the account. Good for new to workforce adult that have not much saving.
