I’ve had my share of Online Banking phishing attempts flooding my mailboxes. However, I feel like sharing this one particular phishing attempt I received today. Take a look at the following email I received.
I can somewhat understand that a few people could probably fall for these types of phishing attacks. Especially if they are new to internet banking and email.
However, I don’t think I’d be able to understand if anyone would fall for the above phishing email. Check it out – First it says my CIMB account is suspended (ok.. lets not get into typo errors there). Then, they say Thank you from Malayan Banking Berhad (CIMB Bank).
Would you fall for this?
Ok. Here’s a note for all who are reading this. Your banks do not and will not send emails to you with regards to your bank account. I think they don’t even send marketing emails to you. So, have this in mind – Banks in Malaysia Do Not and Will Not send emails to their customers.
