ICE confirmed that the emails with the ICE and Kolbi logos are being used by scammers to obtain financial and personal data to commit fraud. Neither the raffle nor survey is from ICE.

In addition, ICE asks users to call 800-Denuncia (800-33686243) or write to 800-DENUNCIE@ice.go.cr for any questions or concerns.
