HKMA Fraud Alert: Another Standard Chartered phishing email
Fraudulent email purporting to be related to Standard Chartered Bank (Hong Kong) Limited
Anyone who has provided his or her personal information to the website, or has conducted any financial transactions through the website should contact SCBHK at 2886 8868 and any local police station or the Commercial Crime Bureau of the Hong Kong Police Force at 2860 5012.
“Members of the public are reminded not to access their Internet banking accounts through hyperlinks embedded in e-mails, Internet search engines or suspicious pop-up windows. Instead, they should access their Internet banking accounts by typing the website addresses at the address bar of the browser, or by bookmarking the genuine website and using that for access. In addition, banks are not expected to send e-mails asking their customers to provide their account information (e.g. Internet banking logon passwords) or verify their account information online. If in doubt, they should contact their banks,” said an HKMA spokesperson.
