Scam alert: Fake email on “Urgent: Positive COVID-19 test result for your foreign worker(s)"
If you get a suspicious email, do not click any links, do not download any files.
There’s a fake email titled “Urgent: Positive COVID-19 test result for your foreign worker(s)”.
The email uses a spoofed MOM email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) and instructs the recipient to download an attachment that claimed to contain information on foreign workers who tested positive for COVID-19.
This is a scam. Advisories issued by MOM alerting employers of COVID-19 cases are sent without email attachments.
If you received this fake email:
- Do not respond. Ignore it, delete it.
- Do not download any attachments.
- Do not click any links.
- Report to the police or call the anti-scam helpline 1800 722 6688.
Use only the official MOM website for all information and transactions on MOM matters.
