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.
