IMPACT – HIGH
What is the change? The Immigration and Checkpoint Authority is warning the public of a fake website that is designed to look like the ICA website and phishes for users’ personal information.
What does the change mean? Customers transacting with the ICA should verify that they are using only the official website: www.ica.gov.sg.
Background: The ICA warned the public Tuesday about the fake website. Screenshots of the fake website appear as a customer portal for users to fill out a fake entry visa application that seeks detailed personal information about both the applicant and the Singaporean sponsor.
The ICA said that no data had been compromised and they were working to bring down the fake website.
BAL Analysis: Companies and individuals should exercise caution when transacting with various government entities via online portals and confirm that they are only using the official websites.
This alert has been provided by the BAL Global Practice group in Singapore. For additional information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
