10:39 | 31/08/2021

Recently, on the mass media, there has been information about new frauds targeting customers' loopholes in online transactions at the close of Lunar New Year. Vietnam - Russia Joint Venture Bank (VRB) would like to warn Customers about fraud via fake messages and websites to steal money in the account / card and recommend the following protection measures:

1 / Forms of fraud via fake messages and websites:
Criminals use high technology method, by sending a text message to the customer's phone number, displaying the Bank's brandname on the message with the content of a warning message to detect suspicious transactions abroad and request owners to log in using the available link to cancel the transaction if the transaction is not done by them; The fake link is usually similar to the Bank's link but is pre-inserted with some characters such as "i -"; "e -"; etc (for example: i-banking.vrbank.com.vn or e- banking.vrb.com.vn;…).

With this trick, criminals can obtain a customer user, password and transaction authentication code to perform money transfer from a customer's account via internet banking or mobile banking services. In fact, there have been some customers of some banks in Vietnam entering information according to fake messages, resulting in loss of money in their accounts.
