ESET Ireland has a look at another Bank of Ireland phishing scam arriving to Irish mailboxes
While we’ve seen them all before, at least this time the cybercriminals told us they care. Isn’t that nice? The email’s heading says “365 Online: We care about your money” and pretends to be coming from Bank of Ireland, using their logotypes and telling potential victims the following:
Clicking anywhere on the mail redirects to a faked Bank of Ireland login page, on a Chinese-registered domain, which first asks for the user’s secure login info and account pin,
then another screen comes up which asks for personal info, name, last name, address, date of birth, mother’s maiden name, etc
and then the last one shows up, asking all the details of your Visa card.
Only after you’ve handed all your information to the scammers, does the last screen, saying “Your account is verified!” come up.
With all your personal, banking and Visa information secured, the cybercriminals can start actively caring about your money!
Irish computer users should not fall for any such emails, no matter how much the scammers say they “care”! Bank of Ireland has some excellent own online security advice, well worth checking out as well.
