The cybersecurity team at the Polish Financial Supervision Authority (CSIRT KNF) warns against fraudsters impersonating InPost. Cybercriminals send text messages with false information.
CSIRT KNF published a new warning on social media on Monday. “Attention! We warn against a phishing campaign impersonating the courier company @InPostPL” – we read in an entry on the X website (formerly Twitter).
The team’s representatives explained that “cybercriminals send fake SMS messages informing users about the need to update their parcel delivery address.” “In fact, dangerous websites extort users’ personal data and payment card details,” it added.
The warning is accompanied by a screenshot of a sample SMS message from the scammers.
In recent days, CSIRT KNF warned against fraudsters impersonating PKO BP bank. Recently, we also reported on a phishing campaign impersonating the ING Polska bank. Cybercriminals sent fake SMS messages with information about the alleged expiration of access to the application.
Moreover, they have appeared before information regarding a phishing campaign targeting Poczta Polska customers.
In turn, the Scientific and Academic Computer Network (NASK) reminds in its announcements that Black Friday is approaching and warns against fake online stores. The most recently accepted applications concerned stores of brands such as Cropp, Mohito, Sinsay and Wojas. According to NASK, the attack scenario involves several steps in which criminals publish advertisements on the Internet and social media that are confusingly similar to those of well-known brands.
