The Norwegian Institute of Public Health (FHI) has been informed of fraudulent e-mails being sent out in the department’s name. The email contains a file that should not be opened, the FHI warns.

“We have received messages about fraudulent emails sent in our name, with the heading “Registered infection.” The email has a file that the recipient is asked to open, and the sender has a address. The email is not from the FHI, and the attachment should not be opened!,” the FHI informed on Twitter.

HelseCERT has been asked to investigate the case.

On the same day, Norway’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs informed the public about scam attempts from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ telephone number. During the calls, fraudsters ask people to transfer them money in order to solve problems with residence permits.
