Investigations have been launched by the Malta Police Cyber Crime Unit in relation to phishing messages received over the weekend by local users.
A message claiming to be from an international supermarket chain offering gift vouchers and e-mail messages received from a global bank with a local presence about unread notifications, are some of the examples of those received, Police said in a statement.
It added that, a closer look at the links contained in the messages reveals that these are not genuine. “It is important to ignore such messages and to refrain from divulging personal details through these forms.”
