The latest phishing scam appears to have come from Bank of Ireland. The email tells customers that they will lose access to Bank of Ireland online if they do not log on to their account. The email, which has the Bank of Ireland logo, also prompts the user to click on a linked address and sign into their account.
Be aware that Bank of Ireland never contacts customers asking them provide full personal log on details either over the phone or online.
Bank of Ireland always advises customers in receipt of phishing or suspicious emails never to click on any link. Clicking on a link may enable the download of malicious software that may have the capacity to collect and compromise personal details and defraud bank accounts.
The bank has provided a section on its website which gives advice to customers on security measures https://www.365online.com/online365/spring/security
