Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) issued a statement that it is aware of a fake website that is phishing for visitors’ visa reference numbers and passport numbers – www.singapore-epass.com/login.html.
The ICA advises members of the public to exercise caution to not unwittingly fall prey to such fake websites. Members of the public are also advised to use only the official ICA website at www.ica.gov.sg for all informational and transactional needs concerning ICA matters.
The authority also assures everyone that access to the official ICA website remains unaffected and no data has been compromised. ICA takes a serious view of such fake websites as it undermines public trust in their system and processes.
It is noted that a police report has also been made.
“We will work to bring down the website and will continue to monitor them,” ICA said in their statement.
This is the second time that in this month that the Authority alerts members of the public of its fake website. On 1 February, it also published a press release on the matter.
