Police issue email fraud warning

The police issued an announcement on Friday warning the public of an email fraud attempting to convince users to wire transfer funds to foreign accounts.

According to the warning, fraudsters assemble email addresses and other details of organisations and subsequently forward letters to the Treasurers impersonating the Chairman of the Board of Directors asking for a money transfer.

In addition, senders use misleading internet services to make messages appear more credible.

Police call on the public to be wary of such emails and to confirm the authenticity of received instructions with the competent persons prior to wiring funds, especially if the account numbers provided do not match ones normally used.

For assistance, the public can reach out to the police’s cybercrime department on 22808200 or via the website cyberalert.cy
