Sometimes bank dealers use the bank’s e-mail to access electronic banking services or to shop online.
However, local banks have warned that cyber criminals may send an email that appears exactly from the customer’s bank, and it may contain a link to a fake website, indicating that when trying to log in, criminals will be able to steal the password of the dealer.
Therefore, the banks advised the following:
– Setting and using the personal identification code (PIN) on the mobile phone.
– Adjust the mobile phone settings, so that it will be locked automatically if it is not reused within a period of five or 10 minutes.
Not to save passwords or other sensitive information on the phone in a way that anyone else can understand.
– Do not save the home phone number and address under the name “Home” in the contact list.
– Watch out for phishing and fraudulent voicemail messages and text messages.
Do not click on links in text messages before checking the senders, as this may be risky.
– When the phone is lost, you must immediately report the loss to the service provider, and write down the “IMEI” number of your mobile phone, by (requesting * # 06 # to obtain it), because submitting it to the service provider company will facilitate the process of disabling the phone in case of theft.
