Residents Reminded to be Wary of Phishing Scams

The Bermuda Police Service wishes to once again advise the public not to provide personal details in response to requests sent via e-mail from unknown entities.  These requests are usually linked to advisories informing the recipient that they have come into significant sums of money and all that is required for them to collect those funds is to provide personal information. As is the case with the two most recent scam e-mails being circulated locally. Superintendent Sean Field-Lament said: “The purpose of these scams is usually identity theft. The advice is to not respond to these e-mails and immediately delete them.
