Millennium bcp does NOT ask, by phone, for the Authorisation Code sent by SMS!

Be aware of SMS that identify the Millennium Bcp's name,
indicating that the User Code and Multichannel Code have been "deactivated",
requesting its activation through a link, as an example below:



This is a phishing attack aimed at capturing your entire Access Codes as well as your phone number, as shown:
If the link is accessed via smartphone:




If the link is accessed via the computer:




We are aware that after capturing the phone contact and access codes in this phishing attack:

- The client is contacted by the attacker who poses as an
Employee of the Millennium bcp Security Area

- The attacker informs the Client that suspicious transactions or
accesses have been identified in his/her bank account;

- The attacker indicates that to cancel the transactions it is necessary
for the Client to identify, during the telephone contact, the Authorisation Codes;

- At that moment, the Client receives on his/her mobile phone,
a SMS with Authorisation Codes to CONFIRM transactions
(e.g. Payment of Services, Payment of Purchases, Transfers).

By giving the Authorisation Codes on a telephone call, the transactions are executed on your account!



Please be reminded that...

Millennium bcp sends email messages:
  • NEVER requests the installation/updating of software after access;
  • NEVER sends SMS with links;
  • NEVER sends Email with links
  • NEVER requests the full Multichannel Code (the 7 digits);
  • NEVER requests your mobile phone number;
  • NEVER requests the Authorisation Code sent by SMS, through the phone;
  • 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 Multichannel Code;
Whenever you access your bank accounts through the Millennium bcp website, check if the address starts with (for the Individuals access) and (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 Authorisation Codes that, apart from the code also contain the data of the transaction you intent to carry out. In case you receive a SMS with an Authorisation Code, without having made a transaction, please contact us immediately.

You should analyse the emails you receive before opening them always confirming the source,
the subject and the spelling and, if you remain with doubts, delete the email without opening it.

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