(CNS): A scam email circulating that purports to be from the Cayman Islands Department of Immigration is loaded with malware and will harm computers, government officials have warned. The phishing attempt has been going out to various clients with the immigration suggesting there has been a change in regulations, but the public is urged not to open the link because not only can it harm your device, it could also harm your network.
The email is originating from [email protected], which on the surface appears to be from immigration but is actually a fake address set up to catch unsuspecting people.
Immigration said that if the department has implemented any new laws, regulations or policies they will be posted to the DoI website.
