How to prevent Phishing
  • Always be on your guard. Ensure you only open emails, attachments, and links from people you are sure you know.
  • Always pay attention to a website's URL. Hover over any links to see where they lead. Rather than click on suspicious links, always access the online banking portals you use from your respective banks’ verified authentic websites.
  • If you are unsure whether an email request is legitimate, try to verify it by contacting the company directly. Report suspected phishing emails to [email protected] or call us on 019065000
  • Ensure your devices are updated with the latest effective anti-virus and always keep your software updated. Make sure you keep your anti-virus software up to date.
  • Never reveal any of your personal or financial information (PINs, Passwords, Card Numbers, Security Questions etc) in an email, text or over the phone.
  • Always investigate and verify what you see. Fraudsters now find it easy to illegally apply the colors, logos, and header of an established organization to present emails in a way that make them look legitimate.
  • Always pay attention to a website's URL. Hover over any links to see where they lead. Rather than click on suspicious links, always access the online banking portals you use from your respective banks’ verified authentic websites.
  • If, for any reason, you believe your payment card data or transactional details may have been compromised in a data breach, please contact us immediately for guidance.
