Warning - Fraudulent e-mails - Do not open links


Several customers of Millennium bcp have been receiving e-mails with the subject "Millenium Cobranças - Aviso de Fatura em Atraso", threatening with a legal suit and presenting negotiation proposals through links in the e-mail.

This is another case of Phishing wherein, when you access the links sent, a malware is installed that will adulterate the browsers to capture access credentials when visiting websites.

Example of the e-mail sent:

 

 

 

We remind you once again:

  • DO NOT OPEN THE LINKS;
  • 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;
  • The malware (virus, Trojan horses, spyware or adware) also disguises the origin of the e-mail, making the recipient believe that the message is legitimate. However, if the e-mail is read and its contents are executed, third parties with malicious intents may gain control of your computer and of the information in it.

Therefore, and since danger will always be lurking around every inbox, we warn you once again that many of the e-mails (allegedly innocent) circulating may contain viruses (or other malware).

Thus, we advise you to remain vigilant and take some precautions, of which we highlight the following:

  • Analyse the e-mail you received before opening them, always confirming the source and the subject;
  • 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: your computer's protection depends on you!
