“We warn against fake pages impersonating Bank Pekao SA” – wrote CSIRT KNF on Twitter. Experts added that “Cybercriminals on dangerous sites are phishing for online banking login credentials.”

“Be careful and carefully verify the address of your bank’s website,” they appealed.

PKO BP recently published a warning against scammers who try to steal customer data. Cybercriminals publish advertisements on social networks encouraging people to invest in PKOCoin.
