New privacy legislation: watch out for phishing!
Be careful: this situation makes it easy for criminals to send false e-mails that appear to come from a bank or other such organisation. There is a serious risk of becoming a victim of attempted phishing.
How can you tell when an e-mail is false? Firstly, look at the address of the sender: it should end with the company’s domain name. Secondly, pay attention to the subject of the e-mail and the credibility of the request.
If in doubt, do not reply to the e-mail and never click on a link or attachment in the e-mail. Use the official telephone number or e-mail address of the alleged sender to obtain confirmation of the authenticity of the e-mail.
