Latest online threats

Beware of Social Media Scams

Cyber criminals have come up with another way of stealing information by impersonating banks’ official social media accounts. This type of scam is known as ‘phishing’ and can happen when customers turn to Twitter or Facebook to ask for help with an issue.

Criminals use these opportunities to target customers and steal their information by using fake Twitter or Facebook accounts that look similar to banks’ official social media accounts. They reply to the customers and trick them into visiting a fake website or sharing security details.

The fake websites found via the links in the emails or messages that these cyber criminals send are designed to look exactly like the banks’ original websites. The customer is prompted to enter information such as their login username and password which can then be used by the criminals for fraud or theft.

What can I do to prevent such scams?

  • • Be vigilant about these types of social media attacks and use the verified channels when seeking help.
  • • Look out for the blue verified badge on the Bank’s official social media accounts.
  • • Never give out any information unless you have initiated the contact and never click on suspicious links to any websites.
  • • If you have any doubts about the identity of someone you are communicating with online, reach out to the Bank via the official customer care phone numbers and email addresses.
