The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines has warned the public against scammers impersonating Apostolic Nuncio to the Philippines Archbishop Charles Brown, using an e-mail.

Msgr. Bernardo Pantin, CBCP Secretary General, said the scam targets those using Yahoo Mail by asking them to enter their login details to receive a “confidential message.”

“It is a phishing attempt to get their (yahoo mail) account details,” CBCP News quoted Pantin’s letter to dioceses.

To avoid being victimized by phishing scams, the country’s Anti-Money Laundering Council have repeatedly advised the public not to reply to suspicious e-mails.

The authorities also urged people not to click any link in a suspicious message, and not to give personal and financial information requested through e-email.
