Important Information (XXXXX)


We have been alerted that several Clients and non Clients received e-mail messages
supposedly sent by Millennium bcp with the subject "Comunicado Importante (XXXX)"
(“Important Information (XXXXX)”), telling the Client to open a link as you can see below:

 

 

It represents a 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 (URL), appears, indicating
“estamos a atualizar os dados dos nossos clientes” (we are updating our customers data):

 

 

After the Client enters the User Code and 4 positions of the Multichannel Access Code
the other 3 positions of the Multichannel Access Code are immediately requested.

 

 

Then you receive an Authorisation Code via SMS, to supposedly activate a
“security application”, as per the screen images below:

 

 

The cyber-criminal insists in the sequential request for Authorisation Codes to carry out
successive transactions using your account - Do not enter the Code you received on you mobile
phone in the message above
and call us immediately.

 

Please reminded that...

To access Millennium bcp's homebanking services the Bank NEVER requests your mobile phone number or the installation of security software;
Whenever you access your bank accounts through the Millennium bcp website, check if the address starts with https://ind.millenniumbcp.pt/ (for the Individuals access) and https://emp.millenniumbcp.pt (for the Companies access) and that, at the end of the address bar, a lock is shown, as follows:

Millennium bcp always sends electronic messages without 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 installation of software/security apps (or other), therefore any such request is a fraud attempt;
Carefully read the SMS received containing the Authorisation Codes since the transaction data are identified in the SMS;




Additional information

  • 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, the subject and the spelling and, if you remain with doubts, delete the e-mail without opening it;
  • Avoid opening links to external websites as well as opening executable files;
  • Never provide personal information or data in an e-mail reply;
  • 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!
