Bogus immigration email is ‘phishing’ scam

The Cayman Islands Immigration Department is warning its customers about a bogus email many received Tuesday announcing that the department had “implemented new laws.”

The department confirmed the email was an attempt at “phishing” – which means an effort to obtain the email users’ personal information.

The email originated from the address [email protected], a fake address. It reads: “Good Morning. The Immigration Cayman Island Implemented New Laws, Check attachment for more details, Click Review Information below.”

The email then asks receivers to click an underlined message stating “Policy Review Here.”
“Please do not open the link as it is a form of malware and will do harm to your computer and possibly the network,” the notice from the real Immigration Department read. “If immigration has implemented any new law, regulations or policies, they will be posted to the immigration website.”
