PHISHING

e-mail phishing exampleThe term phishing identifies the phenomenon by means of which the user receives an e-mail with the Bank's name and header and is invited to connect up to a link. Once they click on the link, the user has the impression of navigating the website of their Bank, but in reality it is an act of fraud.

 

The graphic aspect of the website is very carefully reconstructed so as to make the fraud as believable as possible. At this point, the user is invited to input their codes (personal record file details, secret codes) so that they are registered by the perpetrator of the fraud and subsequently used for fraudulent purposes.

 

Here is some simple advice for using online services in complete safety:

 

  • if you receive dubious e-mails, never click on the indicated link and never input your data in said link
  • as a general precaution, never click on the link present in the e-mail but directly type in the address on the browser address bar
  • in the event that you insert your data, it is necessary to change it as soon as possible on the Bank's website
  • in the event of doubt with regard to the veracity of an e-mail received, you can check that the https:// prefix is present before the domain name of the website which opens by clicking on the link

Beware, the presence of the https:// prefix is not alone a guarantee of the page's reliability.
