Another fake ICA website reported

The Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) has been hit by yet another fake website, in a nefarious move to phish for visitors' data.

It said in a statement yesterday that a fake website at evisasg.mom has been trying to obtain visa reference numbers and passport numbers from its visitors. But no data has been compromised, it added.

Last year, the ICA had warned people of several fake websites trying to phish for users' personal details.

A police report has been made of the latest incident.

In the meantime, ICA advises people to be careful so that they do not fall prey to these fake websites. "Members of the public are also advised to use only the official ICA website at www.ica.gov. sg for all information and transactional needs concerning ICA matters," its statement added.

Access to the official ICA website remains unaffected.

"ICA takes a serious view of such fake websites as they undermine public trust in our system and processes," said its statement. It added: "We will work to bring down the website and will continue to monitor them."
