Scam Alert from First Bank

By on January 8, 2012

The First Bank of Nigeria Plc has issued an alert alert on the activities of unscrupulous individuals who have made attempts to scam unsuspecting members of the public using its Automated Teller Machines.

In a statement issued by the bank, it warned customers to disregard requests by individuals seeking the identification of ATM PINs, saying such requests did not emanate from the bank.

According to the statement, which reads in part, the bank emphasised that “Our attention has been drawn to mails been sent out by fraudsters requesting for such sensitive information as Internet banking accounts and ATM cards details.

“Some of these mails also request that customers update their account records by clicking on links to fake internet banking website.”

The bank advised customers to shun such requests even as it cautioned that internet banking accounts, ATM details and PIN are confidential, hence must not be disclosed to anyone, insisting that the bank would never make such demands of its customers.
