CAAS ADVISORY ON EMAIL SCAM

The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) is aware of an ongoing email scam which involves person(s) impersonating a representative of CAAS, sending emails to vendors to request for direct quotations of specific goods or services, and issuing fake confirmation letters and purchase orders to them.

2     Email addresses with names or domains similar to authentic CAAS emails were used to solicit information from recipients. Examples of fake accounts include tenders@caasgov-sg.com and tenders.caas.gov@gmail.com.

3     CAAS takes a serious view of the matter and has reported the case to the police for investigation. CAAS has also informed affected vendors to disregard and blacklist the fraudulent emails.

4     CAAS wishes to advise business partners and members of the public to be alert to suspicious emails that appear similar to official CAAS emails (@caas.gov.sg), and to exercise caution when sharing their business or personal details online. Should anyone encounter this scam, please disregard the email and if necessary, lodge a police report.
