You are the first and best layer of defense in combating online fraud. Learning to properly detect and avoid online scams is the ultimate protection against fraud. Read the tips below to help you spot potential scams.
Online fraud typically takes the form of fraudulent e-mails and Web sites. These forged means of communication often use corporate logos, colors and legal disclaimers to make them appear authentic.
Fraudulent e-mails are the most common avenue of online scams. A “spoofed” e-mail is one that purports to be from a reputable source in an attempt to trick you into divulging personal or account information, sending payment, or otherwise taking an action that will result in fraud. These attacks are common because they are low-tech and can be easily deployed on a massive scale. Even though the warning signs are there, “phishing” and scam e-mails continue to fool people. Some of these mails also request that customers update their account records by clicking on links to fake Internet banking and Interswitch websites.
Spoofed Web sites, like phishing e-mails, are used by fraudsters who build fake websites that look very similar to Wegagen Bank’s website to lure unsuspecting customers into submitting their online banking log-in information and card details which are later used to access such accounts. Spoof Web sites allow fraudsters to collect such sensitive information as Internet Banking Account and ATM Card Details.
Wegagen Bank will never ask a customer to provide, verify or update their personal, account or financial information via email or pop-up windows. This includes: Passwords, Personal Identification Numbers (PIN), or ATM, Credit or Debit Card numbers. If you receive an email requesting such information, do not respond and never click on a link contained in a suspicious email.
