I can't see this working.
I not lawyer/teacher/CPA.
You've been arrested? Law Society of Singapore can provide referrals.
You want an International School job? School website or http://www.ISS.edu
Your rugrat needs a School? Avoid for profit schools
You need Tax advice? Ask a CPA
You ran away without doing NS? Shame on you!

Are you a PR trying to do this to facilitate your REP renewal ?

This option has stopped working long ago. Do you know?

Taxes, residency and not being employed by an employer allowed to do this (as some categories of Singapore companies are allowed to pay CPF to employees posted over seas - but I doubt you work for one) - all these are issues.

If you pay CPF here you're also going to be tax resident here in essence - so double taxation is a risk.

Nothing stopping you from making voluntary CPF top ups but it won't buy you an REP renewal.
