Beware of new phishing e-mails!

Opgelet voor nieuwe phishingmails!

CCB and CERT.be are calling for prudence: fake e-mails are once again being sent in the name of various banks. The e-mails invite you to click on a link and provide your personal details. However, these messages are not sent by the actual bank in question; they are phishing messages.

Over the Easter weekend, we received about one hundred phishing messages in the name of a particular bank via verdacht@safeonweb.be. Thanks to these reports, we were able to block 6 new fake websites relating to that bank.

Since the launch of verdacht@safeonweb.be, we have been receiving up to 2,000 suspicious messages per day. This enables us to block 2 to 3 fake websites every day.

Our advice:

  • Do not open these messages, forward them to verdacht@safeonweb.be and delete them
  • Do not click on the links or images and certainly do not open any attachments.
  • Do not reply to the fraudulent e-mail / message.
  • Never enter personal details.
  • Do not use the 'unsubscribe link' in the fraudulent e-mail
