Financial Intelligence Unit *** Scam Warning ***

The Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) advises the public of a current email scam targeting Cook Islands government officials. 

The FIU wishes to alert any person who has received emails from the following address to ignore the email and to delete it from their inbox:

Email address: henry.puna@mail.com

The FIU reminds people to be vigilant against scams, in particular from email, fake websites and social media. Electronic scams can be highly sophisticated and they may, at first glance, seem legitimate and may purportedly come from a person you know.

The FIU advises the public to be very careful of disclosing personal information or making payments when a request for either is received unsolicited and may involve dealing, or transacting, with people or businesses in countries you normally do not deal with.

For further advice, please contact the FIU on 29182, 55354 or email Intel@cifiu.gov.ck
