Cyber scams are the order of the day and Phishing attacks have become one of the most common fraud methods on the net. Recently, the Internet Security Office (OSI) has warned about new email and SMS campaigns that supplant the identity of banks such as CaixaBank, Santander and BBVA.
According to the OSI, scammers use social engineering to make users believe that they are in a dire situation and invite them to immediately enter a posted link. What they do not know is that they are entering a page that looks authentic, but is actually false and seeks to steal users’ access credentials.
This type of modus operandi is an old acquaintance. Cybercriminals, who today focus on CaixaBank, Santander and BBVA, have been using this deception method for years with different banking entities. In addition, with the passage of time they have improved their techniques, so it is essential to exercise caution.
