Landsbankinn warns of false SMS messages that have been sent to people in the bank’s name.
An announcement from the bank states that in the message, which is in English, recipients are asked to confirm their mobile phone numbers by clicking on a link that subsequently points people to a fake website that resembles a login page in Landsbankinn’s online bank.
People are asked not to click on the link in question, as the message is sent by fraudsters but is made to appear to be from the bank.
“Landsbankinn reminds that the bank never sends SMS messages or e-mails asking recipients to go to their online bank and login. At the same time, an educational article on the bank’s website is reminded of how to identify the difference between false and real messages. ”
