NOTE: If you see this e-mail;

NB: The email you receive may be a variation of the one presented above.
PLEASE NOTE CAREFULLY:
- This e-mail is not from the Government of Jamaica, even though the domain name (the part after the ‘@’ in the e-mail address) is correct.

Consequently, please treat every e-mail with an attachment with skepticism (especially e-mails with embedded download links).
