SINGAPORE: The Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA) has warned against a phishing email purportedly informing members of the public about a server migration.

The email, which is sent from the URL ava.gog.sg, wishes the recipient a Happy National Day and states that the organisation will be temporarily migrating its servers to Asia.com.

It also asked dog owners about further details on their pets.

In response to queries by Channel NewsAsia, AVA said members of the public should ignore this email should they receive it.

"Do not click on the link or reply to it. Doing so may divulge your personal information," an AVA spokesperson said.

AVA added that this bogus email is similar to one that was circulated last year.
