Phishing Scam

WHAT IS A Phishing Scam?

Victims receive a call informing them that they have won a lucky draw. To claim the prize, the victim must provide their passport details or other personal information.

In another phishing scam, fake websites are created to look identical to the actual websites but with a slightly different web address. Should victims input their personal details and PIN numbers to these websites, their information and money are at risk.
