Alert for transaction simulation pop-up - II


We are aware that there is malicious software that is spread through fraudulent
email messages with Millennium bcp logo in order to give the message credibility.

Some examples:


 

 

 

 

 

After clicking on the annex 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:

 

Alert for transaction simulation pop-up

 

Alert for transaction simulation pop-up

 

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:

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:
  • NEVER request the installation/update of software after access;
  • NEVER SEND SMS with links;
  • NEVER SEND email messages with links;
  • NEVER request the full Multichannel Code (the 7 digits);
  • NEVER request the Client’s mobile phone number;
  • NEVER request, by phone the authorization codes sent by SMS;
  • NEVER requests Authorisation Codes for transactions simulation;
The access to Millennium bcp's website is done by entering the User Code and three random positions of the Access Code;
Whenever you access your bank accounts using Millennium bcp Website, make sure that the address begins with https://ind.millenniumbcp.pt/ (Individuals access) and https://emp.millenniumbcp.pt (Companies access) and that at the end of the address, a lock is shown, as below:

addresses

Always check carefully the contents of the SMS you receive with authorization codes that, apart from the code, contain data of the transaction. In case you receive a SMS without having made a transaction, please contact us immediately.




Analyse the e-mails you receive before opening them, always confirming the source, the subject and the spelling.
If you still have doubts, delete the e-mails without opening them.





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