The Archbishop’s Communications Office (ArchComms) and the Chancery are warning Catholics to beware of fake email accounts and to be vigilant.
The Chancery has released a notice on fraudulent emails impersonating clergy including the Archbishop and Chancellor.
ArchComms, in its online CatholicSG Connect Bulletin, warned that it was possible that a PC was compromised, resulting in the theft of its contact list. The public is advised to be vigilant and wary of suspicious emails especially those with attachments.
Official parish and church organisations’ email accounts should be on catholic.org.sg or their own domain accounts, and not free web email accounts.
