Alert for transaction simulation pop-up


We are aware that there is malicious software that is spread through fraudulent email messages that identify trusted entity logos in order to give the message credibility.

Some examples:

After clicking on the link of the fraudulent message, malicious software is installed on the user's computer, and the following pop-ups are displayed after logging into the website and accessing the transactional toolbar:

This pop-up freezes the computer and the progress bar (above) appears to show the execution of an "install/update" operation. At the end of this process, a new message appears requesting an Authorisation Code, as shown in the following image:

This screen indicates that:
"During this process a transaction simulation may occur, please note that this is a synchronization procedure between the
online Security System and your device, you will receive an SMS which may contain simulated data and values, Banco Millennium
does not carry out any discount on your account, so keep on with the procedure and enter the code sent to your mobile phone in the form below:"

We call attention to the flawed sentence structure and grammatical errors of the text, and remind you that Millennium bcp:
- Does not send Authorisation Codes for transactions simulation;
- Does not send SMS or e-mail's with links.

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 Millennium App setup on a mobile phone.

 

Please be reminded that...

Millennium bcp's website is accessed using the User Code and three random positions of the Multichannel Code;
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:

Carefully read the contents of the SMS received with Authorization Codes that, apart from the code also contain the data of the transaction. In case you receive an SMS without making a transaction, please contact us immediately.
You should 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.
