Please provide account information and one-time password to confirm your identity. No need to doubt anymore, when you hear these words, the other person must be a liar. Remember, never disclose sensitive personal information such as account numbers, credit card information and passwords to anyone. The bank will never ask customers to provide sensitive information such as user names and passwords over the phone or via email. Please take the initiative to check and verify the identity of the caller with us. Even if the other party claims to be an investment product company, a telecommunications company, or even a government official, do not believe it easily. You should also strengthen online banking security and adopt measures such as multiple login authentication to ensure account security.
02 Don’t be greedy for petty gains.
If you win the jackpot, you only need to pay the administrative fee to get the prize. Scammers are best at preying on the public's "cheap-picking" mentality. They will offer you attractive services or generous returns, luring you to willingly advance payment in exchange for an unusually generous "deal." When encountering these dialogues, first ask yourself: Is there any free lunch in the world? Will I lose a lot for a small amount of money? Remember, banks will never ask you to pay a fee to ensure your loan is approved. Bank or mortgage company staff will never ask a customer to borrow money from another financial company to repay the loan. No matter what the situation is, if the other party asks you to "pay money first and enjoy the benefits later", please be especially careful.
03 Stay calm and don’t panic.
If you are suspected of breaking the law, turn over your online banking account, password or money to prove your innocence. In addition to your "greed", scammers will also take advantage of your fear, claiming to be law enforcement personnel, government or bank employees, claiming that you are encountering legal or financial problems, and causing you to provide them with sensitive information in a panic. Or money "clears suspicion."
If you encounter this situation, please stay calm and verify the identity of the other party with the institution or bank again and again. Don’t act rashly when you feel something is wrong. Banks will never ask customers to hand over account passwords or funds to confirm transaction activities, and law enforcement officers will not ask for your personal information over the phone, or ask you to reveal your bank account password to prove your innocence.
Whether using social media, emails or phone calls, although scammers use endless methods, they always try to take advantage of your psychological weaknesses to gain your personal information and trust, so that you can hand over your money. To prevent fraud, you rely on no one else but yourself. If you encounter a scam, please call the police immediately to protect yourself!
