FRAUD with installation of malware


We alert you to emails supposedly sent by Millennium bcp asking
for access to attachments, with different subjects, as for example:

 

 

 

After opening the attachment, a malware is installed in your equipment and its purpose
is the monitoring of your computer by strangers, allowing unauthorized remote access to the content,
namely files, a-mails, photos, invoices, passwords without you even realizing it.

If you open the attachment, it will be necessary to request the analysis and verification
of your equipment by a specialized technician, for detection and removal of the Malware.

 

Pay attention to the deficient sentence structure, the spelling/grammatical errors, and the variants of terms
in Brazilian Portuguese in the texts presented, and we remind you that Millennium bcp:

NEVER requests the installation/update of "security software"
NEVER requests Authorisation Codes for transactions simulation/cancellation;
NEVER requests the full Multichannel Access with the 7 digits (or 3 +4)

 

Please see additional information on malware:
PT: Alert for fraudulent pop-up - Millenniumbcp
EN Alert for fraudulent pop-up - Millenniumbcp

 

Following cases of phishing, we alert that, by identifying the Authorization Codes
received by SMS you are allowing that transactions be made in your account!

Please read carefully the content of the Authorisation Codes that you receive by SMS.

the subject and the spelling and, if you remain with doubts, delete the email without opening it.
