Standard Bank customers targeted by phishing scam
A phishing scam targeting Standard Bank customers claims to have placed a new debit order on their accounts to Liberty Life Insurance, which these customers need to manually de-authorise by following a fraudulent link.
Standard Bank has confirmed that the link in indeed a scam and that the fraudulent website has been shut down. These phishing emails were sent out at random, given that not everybody who received the email would have a Liberty Life policy or even be a Standard Bank account holder.
Consumers are advised to always remain on their guard against phishing attacks.
