  1. Know the source of the communication:

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 asebusiness@yourbank.com being represented as ebusiness@yourbank.com

 

2. Do not give out too much:

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.

 

3. Use passwords that are hard to guess:

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

 

If you have received fraudulent phone calls, text messages or emails, please send an email to your bank  or call their 24hour Contact Centre on the numbers they might provide.
