Police on Thursday warned of another email scam falsely presenting Cyprus police as the senders.
According to police, the latest emails are being sent from fake electronic addresses and the content includes logos of the Cyprus police, the Interpol and the European Union.
The senders falsely appear to be the deputy chief of police.
These mails suggest that the recipients are involved in and will be charged for a variety of offences including sexual assault, child pornography and rape.
The emails are designed to prompt a response which indicates to scammers that the email account is active and it is placed in a database.
Police are warning the public that the mails are fake and under no circumstances would Cyprus police send such mails to citizens or organisations.
The mails are attempts at deceiving citizens and the public is asked to be especially careful and avoid any communication with suspicious addresses.
Recipients of these types of mail should alert the police the soonest.
In addition, any member of the public seeking updates on outstanding matters with the police, are urged to use known communication channels.
