The “Permanent TSB Account Suspension” Phishing Scam

From: Permanent TSB [mailto:[email protected]]

Subject: Important notification; Response required.

Dear Customer,

Your account has been temporarily suspended.

Please log in here.

The link in the fake Open24 / Permanent TSB goes to a fake web page created by cyber-criminals on a compromised website, to trick their potential victims into entering their personal and banking information on it. If the potential victims enter their information on the fake website, it will be sent to the cybercriminals behind the phishing email message, who will use it to hijack the victims’ accounts. They (cyber-criminals) may steal the victims’ money and use their accounts fraudulently.

Permanent TSB customers should never click on a link in an email message to sign into their online banking accounts. Open24 / Permanent TSB customers should always go to www.permanenttsb.ie to sign into accounts or update their account information instead.
