I have received a suspicious e-mail. What should I do?

Be especially alert to suspicious e-mails that were supposedly sent from your bank. Online fraudsters use fraudulent e-mails to phish for internet users' bank details.


They try to get users to visit a fake website through so-called phishing mails after which they ask them to enter confidential data, such as their password, PIN number or card number. This is often followed by a telephone call to ask for additional details. The aim of these criminals is to carry out fraudulent transactions with the obtained data.


What must you certainly not do?

  • Never click on a link in a suspicious e-mail.
  • Never give anyone the electronic signature ('RESPONSE') which you generated with your card reader, whether it is by telephone, e-mail or text message.
