The cybersecurity team at the Polish Financial Supervision Authority (CSIRT KNF) warns against fraud on Facebook. Cybercriminals inform users about the need to take action. Fraudsters also send text messages about an alleged housing allowance.
CSIRT KNF published a new warning on social media on Thursday. “Attention! Fraud on @facebook! Cybercriminals are extorting login credentials for Facebook accounts,” we read in an entry on X (formerly Twitter).
Representatives of the team pointed out that fraudsters “inform users about the need to take action, but in fact they redirect them to a fake website. They use posts in which they tag multiple fan pages.” It was emphasized that “accounts in their hands may lead to the theft of funds.”
“Be vigilant and warn your friends,” advise representatives of the CSIRT KNF.
Housing allowance scam
The CERT Polska team also published warnings on their social media accounts on Thursday. The warning concerns “housing allowance” scams.
“Housing allowance? No, another version of the phishing campaign. This time, under the guise of receiving an allowance, cybercriminals are hunting for our data. Be careful and send such messages to us,” we read. Cybercriminals send text messages with information about the alleged add-on.
