Always place your mouse on the sender’s name and confirm that the email address displayed in the hint is the same as the sender’s name or the company being represented.
Also, check for spelling mistakes in the email address such firstname.lastname@example.org being represented as email@example.com

Be careful about how much information you give out. No Bank Staff will ever ask you to disclose your Internet Banking Password, Mobile Banking Password/PINor Debit/Credit Card PIN over the phone, via SMS and by email.

Use a password that is a combination of upper and lowercase alphabetic characters, numbers, symbols and is at least 8 characters in length e.g.FCMB1983_myBank&i
