keyboard computer hacker scam

The Central Bank of Malta (CBM) has warned the public against a new phishing attempt circulating, aimed at getting confidential bank account information.

Messages purporting to be sent by the Central Bank of Malta (pictured below) direct the recipient to a phishing site, the CBM warned.

“This approach is a scam – as the Bank does not issue cards or offer public customer accounts, or request such information for cards issued by or customer accounts held with credit institutions.”

Anyone receiving such correspondence should always proceed with caution and should report any suspicious letters to the relevant authorities, the CBM stressed.
