Beware of Cloning Scam and Fraudulent Websites
Rasmala is not liable for any sort of loss or damage that occur as a result of fraudulent cybercrime schemes. Cyber crime may take a myriad of forms, in addition to those described below. We strongly encourage you to remain alert at all times and exercise caution when sharing your personal information.
Phishing is one such scam that appears to be from a legitimate business but is intended to steal personal information.
A Lottery or Advanced Payment scam involves an unexpected email advising that a prize has been won in an international lottery, or that a financing facility involving a large amount of money has been approved. The Lottery or the financing bank described is usually based overseas and one that the recipient of the email never entered. The scammed victim is usually excited about the windfall and keen to claim the money.
The victim responds to the email, and the scammers reply in a polite, professional and helpful manner. The scammers will invariably request a ‘fee’ that is required in order to process the winnings. That is the fraud. Nothing has been won at all, but winnings are dangled in front of the victim while the scammers try to get as much money as they can in fees and charges.
Lottery and advance payment scams can take many forms including requests for you to participate in a fictitious lottery. For further information about lottery scams go to: http://www.hoax-slayer.com/email-lottery-scams.html
Cloning involves imposters who set up a similar website to that of Rasmala’s authentic website with the purpose of enticing members of the public to contact them on contact details that are not related to Rasmala.
If you become aware of any such websites or persons, you are encouraged to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to verify authenticity.
