Danske Bank has issued an urgent fraud warning to customers.
The bank has said that “fraudsters are currently targeting some customers via text message by adding their fraudulent message into the genuine Danske Bank text stream”.
The messages are indicating that a payment has been made from customers’ accounts and urging them to call a number if they did not authorise it.
Danske Bank is warning customers not to call the number – which begins with the digits 0330 – contained in the text message.
“Do not call the number – and remember, we’ll never ask you for personal information such as PINs, passwords or log on details over the phone, via email or online,” the bank warns.
If anyone has clicked on a link or phoned the number and “divulged any personal or account information” then they should immediately contact the bank.
If you suspect fraud or attempted fraud on your account, report it through Danske Bank’s official channels, which can be found here http://bit.ly/2FBlCw6
