Despite the continued observance of the enhanced community quarantine, scammers are still prevalent. They post as bank personnel and urge clients to verify their bank accounts by clicking on a link. This link, however, directs to a fake website that looks exactly like a bank’s official website. Clients are then tricked into divulging their personal information.
Account numbers, online banking login details, and credit card information are an example of personal information. These details enable scammers to use clients’ identities, access their online bank accounts, and eventually steal money.
