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 (for the Individuals access) or (for the Companies access) and that, at the end of the address bar, a lock is shown, as follows:

  • 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.
