Grenada: The Grenada National Cyber Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT Gnd) wishes to inform the public of a United Kingdom visa sponsorship and employment phishing scam currently targeting Grenadians and is being shared by Grenadians via social media.

The scam was identified and flagged by CSIRT Gnd on October 27, 2022. Warnings were thereafter posted to social media.

The scam invites interested persons to click on a given link to apply for a United Kingdom Visa as well as to sign up for employment. CSIRT Gnd wants the public to know that the link shared in the message leads to a phishing website and that visiting phishing websites can result in account compromise, device compromise, or both. Additionally, sharing personal information on a phishing website can also lead to identity theft.

The public is hereby warned about engaging with unverified advertisements, sponsored posts, messages, emails, and other postings.

If a citizen receive the message, please delete it. If anyone received the message, clicked on the link and entered the personal information, scan the device for malware and monitor the accounts for suspicious activities.
