The fake website address has been identified as http://www.eservicesimigov.com and it is believed that the purpose of this website is to steal the personal details entered by users.

Honestly, the web design looks really convincing and could easily fool those who’re not attentive enough. Some of the information required by the fake website include:

  • Employers’ IC number
  • Company registration number
  • Passport number

As such, the immigration department urges Malaysians, especially travellers who are applying for visas to practise extra precaution to avoid their sensitive information from getting stolen. Also, consumers were asked to stay vigilant and to ensure that the website is authentic before filling in their particulars. Remember to check the website address! 

So guys, if you visit government websites frequently, make sure you keep your eyes peeled for fake websites like this because these people can do a lot of malicious things with stolen personal data!
