Singapore’s Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) said that it has come to ICA’s attention that there is a fake ICA website (www.ica-spg.org) that is phishing for personally identifiable information such as National Registration Identification Card (NRIC) and passport numbers.
The ICA advised members of the public to exercise caution so that they do not unwittingly fall prey to such fake websites. Members of the public were also advised to use only the official ICA website at www.ica.gov.sg for all informational and transactional needs concerning ICA matters.
ICA further assured members of the public that access to the official ICA website remains unaffected and no data has been compromised.
ICA said that it takes a serious view of such fake websites as they undermine public trust in the Republic’s system and processes. The government agency has made a police report and is working to bring down the fake website. It added that it will continue to monitor this matter.
