Phishing Alert - Unrecognized Device Login (Online Banking)

Written by Publisher on . Posted in IT Advisory

A phishing attempt via electronic mail that allegedly came from an unknown individual who used the name of a banking institution, evaded the spam filter and went straight to the inbox of the Gmail user. Some of the signs of a phishing activity observed in the email includes the following:

a. The address of the sender (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) did not conform with the bank's official email addresses;

b. When the client was addressed, the hacker did not use the full name of the recipient; 

c. The ACCOUNT ACTIVITY hyperlink leads to location other than the official bank website; and

      d. The recipient received an email from a bank where he/she has no existing account.

E-mail users are advised to be alert when similar emails enter their inbox, especially when the sender directs the recipient to access a suspicious hyperlink. This can lead to various irreversible consequences such as identity theft, data theft, ransomware, sabotage thru corrupted computer content, and other forms of cybercrime.
