Phishing Scam - Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA) Dog License Renewal

Would you share this Article with others?

Scammers are sending out the fake Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA) email message below, claiming that the recipients dog licenses are up for renewal and the recipients should renew and make payments via a website address or URL. The AVA said that the Singapore Police Force is investigating the scam and advises recipients of the fake email message or letter, not to follow instructions in it, and should instead, report it to the police.

The website address or URL in the fake email message will take recipients, who have clicked on it, to a PayPal account with the name: “Payment For Dog Licence - ava.gov.sg” that is associated with the email address: singov.ava@groupmail.com”. Both the PayPal account and the email address were created by the cyber-criminals responsible for the scam.
