Scammers Pose As Financial Cops In Latest Email Scam

GEORGE TOWN, Grand Cayman (CNS) -- The RCIPS is warning the public that an email purporting to be from the RCIPS Financial Crime Unit circulating Friday morning is a scam.

The police warned anyone who has received the email that this is not legitimate, and the link in the email should not be clicked on. They said that originating email, access@rcips.ky, does not exist, and that those with candw.ky email addresses appear so far to be the main recipients of this phishing exercise.

The email (see below) implies that a complaint has been made to the police about a message from their email account and asks them to click on the link.
