Account Takeover Fraud
An account takeover can happen when a fraudster or cybercriminal poses as a genuine customer, gains control of an account and then makes unauthorised transactions. Here are some common types of security threats:
Phishing emails are where criminals impersonate reputable companies in an attempt to acquire private or sensitive information such as your eWallet username and password, credit card details, and other personal details.
A form of phishing that uses mobile phone SMS, text messages or other messaging apps to trick the targeted user into providing sensitive information. These messages typically ask you to reply to the message or call a fraudulent contact number.
Type of spear phishing that targets high-level executives or other high-profile individuals. These individuals are often more likely to have access to sensitive information, making them a valuable target for attackers.
This attack uses phone calls to trick victims into giving up their personal information. The attacker will often pose as a representative from a legitimate company, and ask the victim to verify their personal information.
Pharming attacks use fake websites to capture a victim’s personal information. The attacker redirects a legitimate website to fraudulent one which is designed to mimic the real one.
Never share your account credentials, including username, password, 2FA verification code.
