Yolande Steyn, Head of Innovation at FNB says “We view security as an integral part of a seamless online banking experience. Therefore, due to the prevalence of banking scams, we urge consumers to be more vigilant and familiarise themselves with the different types of online banking fraud.” “FNB proactively closes down fraudulent phishing websites used by criminals to try and access customers’ confidential banking details,” adds Steyn, as she unpacks the latest online banking scams that consumers should be wary of.
“Remember, the bank will never ask for your username, password or PIN in an email, SMS, social media or phone call. Never select a link to our website that was sent via email. Always type in FNB's web address,” concludes Steyn. CLICK BELOW to find out how to know if you are being ripped off for your car service.
