Warning: More than 50 DBS customers fell for phishing SMSes in last two months
In the last two months, more than 50 people have reported falling victim to the scam, said the police and DBS Bank in a joint news release.
In the phishing SMSes that looked like they were sent by the bank, victims were told that suspicious activity had been detected in their account.
Those who clicked on the link in the SMS were then directed to fraudulent websites where they were deceived into providing their Internet banking details.
The victims later found out that a new payee had been added to their bank accounts and unauthorised transactions were made.
The banks' actual Web addresses are: www.dbs.com.sg and www.posb.com.sg.
