Identity theft can be committed through e-mail or other means, such as regular mail, fax or telephone, or even by going through someone’s trash. Identity theft occurs when someone uses another genuine person’s personal or professional information such as name, email address, professional designation or other identifying information without his/her permission to commit fraud or other identity related misconduct.
Internet fraudsters and scam artists are increasingly targeting unsuspecting people by a method called PHISHING. Phishing is when you receive authentic-looking messages in particular emails, appearing to come from someone, but in reality, it is sent by imposters using similar looking email addresses to obtain business information or trigger commercial transactions. These deceptive emails lead recipients into believing that they are actually dealing with someone from the Company and will lead them to share confidential company information or to take business actions based on such emails.
Please remember that Emirates National Investment and all its member entities will never send such e-mails that ask for unsolicited confidential information pertaining to business or request for certain business transactions by email.
Emirates National Investment official communications are never sent from personal email addresses hosted on domains such as yahoo, hotmail, gmail etc. Please verify the sender email address carefully.
Emirates National Investment does not conduct or approve financial transactions over email. We make every effort to hold all our official meetings at one of our listed office addresses within UAE. So, please beware in case you receive a request to meet someone, claiming to be from Emirates National Investment, for the first time outside our office premises.
We will never use personal email in our communications with you to request confidential information
