SINGAPORE - The Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA) has warned the public of a phishing e-mail message making the rounds on the Internet.

A sample of the message was attached in its statement on Thursday (Aug 13):

[[{"fid":"378794","view_mode":"default","type":"media","attributes":{"height":322,"width":100,"border":"0","style":"border: 0;","class":"media-element file-default"},"link_text":null}]]

AVA has advised that any one receiving the e-mail should not click on the obviously dubious link in the message, nor reply to the e-mail, which was sent from ava.gov.sg@techemail.com.
