Another phising scam rears its ugly head

By Staff Writer
Wow! Just two weeks after we ran a story on phishing and 419 scams and warning all our readers about the SARS scam a new e-mail arrived in our inbox and this one looks very legitimate and it would appear that this time, the scammers are even trying to convince everyone that they are trying to help.

Justmoney.co.za investigated and we spoke to Stepehen Higgins, Senior Manager, Personal Banking Media Liaison.

"We are launching a free anti-phishing and Anti-Trojan/malware software to media at a function this (Wednesday) afternoon," Higgins said.

"Customers may upload the security software via FNB Online banking site only. We continue to urge customers to never click on a link in an email claiming to come from FNB

To view a picture of the e-mail and read what is says follow this linkIt all looks prettty real and legitimate, doesn't it? The e-mail ends with a whole lot of terms and conditions from FNB.

The scariest part about this e-mail is that, as Higgins mentioned, FNB are actually busy updating their security servers so it's easy to fall for this but, as we were assured - this is a scam. Do not click links in emails asking for your details - it is always, under every circumstance, a scam!

For more information please visit the FNB website.
