Scammers send messages with a link to funds that someone allegedly transferred via blik. If you get such a message, do not click on the provided link – warns Bank Millennium.
“Neither us nor the payment operator BLIK – we do not send such SMS. If someone sends a transfer to a BLIK phone, the funds will automatically be on your account and you do not have to confirm anywhere that you want to collect them.
The blik operator showed what a sample SMS sent by scammers looks like. The message may read: “Someone sent a PLN 300 transfer to your number, collect it now and click on this link.”
“BLIK does not send SMS messages and does not store user data. If you have received such a message – do not click on the link, it is a fraud attempt” – it was written on Twitter.
Internet scams and fake sites
Cybercriminals do not stop in their activities. We reported on several campaigns in which they impersonate large banks.
This week, the cybersecurity team at the Polish Financial Supervision Authority (KNF CSIRT) warned against scammers who post false advertisements with information about compensation for vaccination.
Cybercriminals have created advertisements in which they use the image of Santander Bank Polskaleading to “dangerous sites”.
PKO BP published a warning against scammers who try to steal customer data. Cybercriminals publish advertisements on social networks encouraging people to invest in PKOCoin.
mBank also warned against thieves, as the criminals used its image by sending e-mails with information about the confirmation of the alleged SWIFT payment. Earlier, the KNF CSIRT warned that fraudsters were using the image of Bank BNP Paribas.
