Proof of a Transaction - Domestic Transfer

We have been alerted that several Clients and non Clients received e-mail messages
supposedly sent by Millennium bcp with the subject "Comprovativo Transação - Transferência Nacional”
sem a identificação do “nosso cliente”, with a file attached as you can see below:



This is another case of Phishing wherein, when you access the file attached named
“millenniumbcp.PDF.tar”, you install an executable file (.exe) without even knowing it.

This executable file is a Trojan horse, a malicious software very versatile that could go
unnoticed if not detected by an antivirus or anti malware. It may execute actions such as:

- Alter the equipment’s safety system, opening the door to other malwares;

- Copy passwords and/or personal data and send them to the cyber-criminal;

- Use the equipment as a starting point for the execution of frauds.

A Trojan horse survives and remains hidden for long periods
of time and may be activated at any moment!


Please reminded that...

To access Millennium bcp's homebanking services the Bank NEVER requests your mobile phone number or the installation of security software;
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:


Millennium bcp always sends electronic messages without links;
The Millennium bcp's website is accessed using a User Code and three random positions of the Multichannel Code and Millennium bcp never requests the installation of software/security apps (or other), therefore any such request is a fraud attempt;
Carefully read the SMS received containing the Authorisation Codes since the transaction data are identified in the SMS;

Additional information

  • 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, the subject and the spelling and, if you remain with doubts, delete the e-mail without opening it;
  • Avoid opening links to external websites as well as opening executable files;
  • Never provide personal information or data in an e-mail reply;
  • 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!
