Alert for transactions simulations


Millennium bcp NEVER requests the installation/update
of software after accessing the website


There is a malware which is disseminated through fraudulent e-mail messages or SMS
identifying names of trustworthy entities or individual/family contacts from the user
with the purpose of making the message credible.


Please find some examples here:

 

   

 

 

In case you access the link/attachment and execute the file, do not access bank websites
and request immediately a technical intervention to verify if your equipment has
some Malware installed.


By WEB access

fraudulent e-mail message being shown the following pop-ups after accessing the website of Millennium bcp:

 

 

OR

 

 

These pop-ups block the equipment and the bars shown (in green and cerise in the examples above)
are being filled-in appearing to be doing an "installation/update". At the end of this process,
Authorization Codes are requested to "simulate" transactions, when the purpose is to
authorize the transactions that are debited from the bank account
.


By MOBILE access

NIn the MOBILE access, the installation of the Millennium App is requested,
when the App is already installed in the client’s equipment:

 

 

Both in the installation process and in the authorization of operations, Millennium bcp NEVER
asks for the full Multichannel code with 7 digits (or 3+4).
Please read carefully the contents of the text message sent by SMS
,
because when you provide an Authorisation Code you are confirming a transaction in your account
or the set-up of the Millennium App.

in Brazilian Portuguese in the texts presented, and we remind you that Millennium bcp:
