Dubai: Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) has reminded its customers to always check the domain name whenever they receive any email from Dewa and to make payments only through trusted channels.
This advise came after Dewa noticed that some customers had received fraudulent emails, claiming they were from Dewa and asking them to make bill payments. “Dewa urges its customers not to respond to such emails or click on any link within those emails,” the utility service provider said in a statement sent to Gulf News on Friday.
