There were recent reports of phishing cases where scammers will send fake SMSes to customers impersonating Bank of Singapore’s parent company, OCBC and/or Bank of Singapore, claiming issues with their account and asking them to click on an URL link.
DO NOT click on such phishing SMS link. The URL will lead you to a fake website which is controlled by the scammers. It will trick you to provide your online banking login details, card details or one-time passwords (“OTPs”).
Be vigilant against such phishing threats which may come in other forms such as emails, SMSes or voice calls. Please note that:
Phishing is a way of obtaining confidential information such as one’s banking account details, PIN, OTPs, credit card numbers, user ID or passwords through the Internet, in order to perform unauthorised banking transactions.
Please contact your Relationship Manager immediately if you notice any unusual activities in your account or if you believe your account has been compromised.
