Beware of a new type of fraud: "Safe deposit account fraud"

On its website, Febelfin warns about a new form of fraud, called "safe deposit account fraud".

Febelfin, the Belgian federation of banks, is warning against a new form of fraud. "Scammers usually approach you in two steps: first, they will send you a phishing message to scam your personal banking codes. That is how they try to access your account. Then they will call you. They then claim to be an employee of your bank and ask you to transfer money to a supposedly new, safe account."
