Email scam cites immigration to lure victims

| 15/08/2017 | 5 Comments

(CNS): Government officials have issued a warning regarding an email being sent to immigration customers in which scammers are posing as the local Department of Immigration to suck people into a phishing effort. Officials warned those who receive the email not to open the link, as it will harm computers and networks.

The email being sent by ‘Royal Cayman Immigration’ includes a fake address (info@immigration.gov.ky) and claims to be about changes to immigration policy.

Immigration stated that if the department was to implement any new laws, regulations and/or policies they will be posted to the official website.

    Um, when you say “immigration customers” doesn’t that imply that immigration’s systems holding the sensitive personal data of many, many people may have been compromised?

    Anyone who clicks on bogus links deserve what they get. They are so incredibly easy to verify, but IT people tend to think they are smarter than anyone else and make out that this is highly complicated and we are all stupid. IT people contribute to this problem as far as I am concerned. Education is what is needed not IT people with superiority complexes.

    It would be nice if these computer hackers or identity thieves or whatever type of maladjusted miscreant is responsible for this to enjoy some jail time to rethink the error of their ways. Obviously I am a dreamer.
