In case you access the LINK and execute the file, do not access bank websites and
request immediately a technical intervention to remove the Malware from your equipment.

e-mail message being shown the following pop-ups after accessing the website of Millennium bcp:

We call attention to the flawed sentence structure and grammatical errors of the text,
and remind you that Millennium bcp:

NEVER requests the installation/update of software after access
NEVER requests Authorisation Codes for transactions simulation

 

Please read carefully the contents of the text message,
because when you provide an Authorisation Code you are confirming
a transaction in your account or the set-up of Millennium App on a mobile phone.
