The cybersecurity team at the Polish Financial Supervision Authority (CSIRT KNF) warns against fraudsters impersonating BNP Paribas Bank. Cybercriminals send e-mails with information about the alleged need to update data.
CSIRT KNF published a new warning on social media on Tuesday. “We warn @BNPParibas_PL customers against fake e-mails informing about the need to update their data,” we read in a post on the X website (formerly Twitter).
The team’s representatives explained that “entering the link in the message and entering your data may result in loss of money.” Additionally, it was reported that “in this campaign, apart from logins and account passwords, fraudsters also steal the mother’s maiden name and SMS codes.” “Don’t get robbed!” – appeals CSIRT KNF.
The scammers’ offensive continues. On Monday, we informed about a “dangerous e-mail campaign”. The CERT Polska team indicated that “fraudsters ask to send an offer for an order allegedly included in the attachment.” In fact, the attachment contains GuLoader malware.
The report of the National Bank of Poland shows that in the first quarter of 2023, almost 12 thousand were recorded. fraud using payment cards. This is according to data from settlement agents. This represents an increase of over a quarter compared to the previous quarter.
