Fraudulent e-mail - Reembolso de imposto


Following the alert published on 26 March 2015, we identified a new message allegedly sent by Millennium bcp and received by several Customers and non Customers with the subject:"Pagamento xxxx,xx Euro", saying "Você recebeu um reembolso de imposto".

Example of the e-mail sent:

Mensagem fraudulenta 

It represents another case of Phishing wherein when you access the link, a login page similar to the one presented by Millennium bcp but located at another website, appears:

Mensagem fraudulenta 

The message requests the Username and, after continuing in the page, it requests the full Multichannel Code as well as an Authorisation Code, obtained via SMS or Token for "restituição do imposto" as shown below:

Mensagem fraudulenta 

We recall that:

  • Millennium bcp does not send electronic messages with links;
  • The Millennium bcp's website is accessed using a User Code and three random positions of the Multichannel Code and Millennium bcp never requests the full code, therefore any such request is a fraud attempt;
  • Please read carefully the SMS's received containing the Authorisation Codes since the transaction data are identified in the SMS;
  • Phishing aims to, abusively, steal personal data through messages that take the user to fake websites, imitating those you usually access and requesting that you enter confidential data;
  • Analyse the e-mails you receive before opening them, always confirming the source and the subject, if possible, with the issuer;
  • Avoid opening links to external websites and opening executable files;
  • Never provide personal information or data in an e-mail reply;
  • When accessing confidential access websites, check the address and make sure you are on a secure webpage (https:// + lock);
  • Install (if you haven't done so yet) an antivirus software and update it regularly.

Remember: The protection of your assets and of your computer depends on you!
