Protect yourself from
Overseas Transaction Fraud

Safe Banking
Avoid being scammed while transferring money abroad.

Scammers may pretend to be your overseas contact and send you fake emails requesting to transfer.

How to protect yourself:

  • Call the overseas party to confirm before you pay
  • Watch out for warning signs – maybe the bank details provided are of a different country, or bank details or invoice amount has changed

Protect your email account

  • Don’t open spam emails – delete them
  • Don’t download anything from an unknown source
  • Instead of clicking Reply, click Forward and retype the email address – to ensure the right recipient
  • Spam emails often insist on some urgent action to avoid a problem – don’t rush, recheck

Secure your Computer

  • Avoid downloading from unknown online sources or USB sticks
  • Ensure you have the latest antivirus / malware protection and latest security updates installed, and use high-level macro security settings in software applications
  • Don’t reuse passwords – and change them regularly

Note: Keep your mobile number and e-mail ID updated with the bank to get transaction alerts and keep track of all your banking transaction.
