The Bank appealed to its clients to remain vigilant and ignore suspicious e-mails, text and social media messages, links and attachments from unknown senders. It also urged the pubic to be on the look-out for fake websites and social media accounts pretending to be LANDBANK by checking and verifying a suspicious site’s URL, email address, social media account or phone number.
Official LANDBANK representatives will never ask for a client’s one-time passwords (OTPs), account details, and the card verification value (CVV) at the back of the card, among other security details, the Bank said.
