BMA Warn About Email Phishing Attempts

May 9, 2024 | 0 Comments

The Bermuda Monetary Authority [BMA] said they have been “made aware of several e-mail phishing attempts targeting Bermuda-based financial services licensees registered with the Authority.”

A spokesperson said, “The e-mails appear to be coming from false Bermuda Monetary Authority e-mail addresses or private e-mail accounts.

“The fraudulent e-mails misappropriate the Bermuda Monetary Authority’s name by attempting to get the recipient to click and open a PDF that requests more information as soon as possible. The Authority wishes to advise that no one at the BMA would make this kind of request.

“Any similar e-mails should be treated as phishing attempts, and the recipients should avoid clicking on any links or opening PDFs within such emails. If you receive any suspicious e-mails that appear to be from the BMA, please contact the Authority directly and refrain from opening attachments, clicking on links or responding to the sender of these messages.

“The Authority has investigated this matter and can confirm that the BMA’s systems and network have not been compromised. Protecting the privacy of the Authority’s data and information, including that sourced from our registrants, has always been the highest priority for the BMA.

“If you receive an e-mail like this, please delete it immediately and report it to the Bermuda Police Service at and the Bermuda Monetary Authority’s Corporate Affairs Department.”
