Did you click on a suspicious link?

  • If you have clicked on the link, do not complete the fields and terminate any interaction.
  • NEVER give out personal codes.
  • If you have entered a password that you also use elsewhere, change it immediately.
  • If you have clicked on a link that opens a website where you have to submit bank details, first check that this is the real website of your bank. If you have the slightest doubt, do not make a payment.
