What is Phishing?

A phishing attack is when you receive an official-looking e-mail from an unknown sender or any other service that deals with money. The e-mail states that you should click a link and confirm your login and password to this particular link. As soon as you click on the link, you are sent to a Web page that looks remarkably similar to the company's real Web site, but it's not the company's real Web site. What is happening is that you are sent to a fake page that is controlled by the criminal who is behind the phishing scheme. As soon as you type your login\password or account information or credit card number, the thieves or hackers capture the information and then commit identity theft by using your credit card or stealing money from your account. By following these rules you will significantly enhance mobile banking protection and minimize the risks to your finances and bank safely online.

  • Guard against spam. Be especially cautious of emails that:
  • Come from unrecognized senders.
  • Ask you to confirm your personal or financial information over the Internet and/or make urgent requests for this information.
  • Always look for a sign that the site is secure such as a lock icon on the browser's status bar or a https: URL whereby the "s" stands for "secure".
  • Do not click on links, download files or open attachments in emails from unknown senders. It is best to open attachments only when you are expecting them and know what they contain, even if you know the sender.
  • Never email personal or financial information, even if you are close with the recipient.
  • Beware of links in emails that ask for personal information, even if the email appears to come from Faysal Bank. Phishing web sites often copy the entire look of a legitimate web site, making it appear authentic.
  • Beware of pop-ups and follow these tips:
    • Never enter personal information in a pop-up screen.
    • Do not click on links in a pop-up screen.
    • Do not copy web addresses into your browser from pop-ups.
    • Faysal Bank will never send e-mail to customers asking for personal information such as user Ids and Pin codes.
  • Keep your system up to date with security patches. Install an antivirus app on both your personal computer and your mobile device and keep it updated.
