What to do with suspicious messages
If you receive messages as described above, please ignore them and treat them as spam. Always be skeptical of email-only fund transfer requests involving urgency. Under no circumstances should you send your banking details, personal information, or any payment to the sender. Do not click on the links, URL (internet address), or open the attachments in these emails. Please double check if the logo, name, and domain have been misrepresented or mimicked.
If you suspect you have been or are being targeted by scammers, please contact your local law enforcement agency.
To report the sender for fraudulent or corrupt practices, contact OAI at [email protected].
