False messages using the name Millennium bcp Cobranças


We have been alerted that several Clients and non Clients received e-mail messages supposedly sent by Millennium bcp with the subject "Cartorio 2º Ofício Documentos e Pessoas Jurídicas"" telling the Client to open documents "links" as you can see below:

 

 

As you can see, this message presents grammatical and spelling mistakes and states that the alleged "annexes" are PDF documents. However, if you put the mouse pointer on those annexes a link will appear which will lead you to a website in Poland (.pl). This way, you will confirm that this is a fraud attempt - phishing.

Therefore, it is our duty to remind you that:

  • Millennium bcp does not send e-mail messages with links;
  • Whenever you access your bank accounts through the Millennium bcp website, check if the address starts with https://ind.millenniumbcp.pt/ (for the Individuals access) or https://emp.millenniumbcp.pt (for the Companies access) and that, at the end of the address bar, a lock is shown, as follows:

    Endereços
  • Millennium bcp's Individuals website is accessed using a User Code and three random positions of the Multichannel Code and Millennium bcp never requests the full code, therefore any such request is a fraud attempt.
  • The corporate website is accessed using a User Code, a password and two digits of the company's tax identification number (TIN);
  • Please read carefully the SMS received containing the Authorisation Codes since the transaction data are identified in the SMS;
  • 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.
  • Analyse the e-mails you receive before opening them, always confirming the source and the subject, if possible, with the issuer;
  • Avoid opening links to external websites as well as 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: The protection of your assets and of your computer depends on you!
