SINGAPORE - Another fake Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) website has surfaced.

The fake site is phishing for visitors' visa reference numbers and passport numbers, ICA said on Friday (March 24).

The URL of the phishing site is "www.singapore-epass.com/login.html". ICA directed members of the public to www.ica.gov.sg, which is the official site, for all information and transactions.

The ICA advised members of the public "to exercise caution so that you do not unwittingly fall prey to such fake websites".

 

"We would like to assure everyone that access to the official ICA website remains unaffected and no data has been compromised," ICA said.

 

A police report has also been made and the agency is working to bring down the website.

Other fake ICA sites were reported in this year and last year.

Other government agencies, including the Ministry of Manpower and the police, have also warned of such phony sites.
