Beware of Fraudulent E-mails requesting online banking security details!
Internet Banking is a safe way to manage
your money. However, there are Internet Fraudsters
around who will try to gain access to your accounts
by E-mailing you and prompting you to disclose
your on-line banking security details to them.
Banks will never send E-mails that ask for confidential
information. If you receive an E-mail requesting
your Internet Banking security details, you
should not respond.
Typically you will receive an E-mail claiming
to be from your bank, either requesting your security
details (perhaps as part of an update or confirmation
process) or asking you to follow a link to a site
where you will be encouraged to provide a range
of information such as your credit card number,
personal identification number (PIN), passwords
or personal information, such as mother's maiden
Clicking on the link then takes you to a fake
website, designed to look like that of your bank,
but operated by the Fraudster.
Fraudulent E-mails and websites can be very convincing
and Fraudsters are continually inventing new approaches
to get you to divulge your security details.
Treat all unsolicited emails with caution and
never click on links from such emails and enter
any personal information.
If you've replied to a suspicious E-mail and
provided personal or sensitive information about
your account please contact us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org
