The cybersecurity team at the Polish Financial Supervision Authority (CSIRT KNF) warned against websites suggesting the possibility of receiving a tax refund. As explained, apart from electronic banking login details, fraudsters also steal payment card details.
CSIRT KNF published a new warning on social media on Tuesday. “Cybercriminals have prepared fake websites impersonating #PodatkiGov, where they inform about the possibility of receiving a tax refund,” we read on the X website (formerly Twitter).
As explained, “on dangerous websites, fraudsters, apart from e-banking login details, also steal payment card details.”
“Be careful and don’t get robbed!” – added.
In recent days, CSIRT KNF warned against fraudsters impersonating PKO BP bank. Recently, we also reported on a phishing campaign impersonating ING Bank Śląski. 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.
