Maib warns about the recent increase in bank fraud attempts on the Internet. Considering the favourable market position and the trust customers have towards maib, miscreants have created fake websites and pages on social networks where they offer you to invest money in the bank's shares after participating in a short survey, promising steady earnings.
These messages easily slip past digital filters and mislead even the most vigilant. Their goal is to deceive users and, through psychological manipulation, force them to reveal confidential information or take specific actions that steal their personal and authentication data, such as name and surname, address, IDNP, phone number, card number, expiry date, and CVV security code.
Keep a lookout, and do not participate in financial investment schemes. Check any information appearing on the official website www.maib.md.
To avoid the theft of money from the card, four tips are essential:
- DO NOT respond to messages asking for personal information;
- DO NOT access the proposed links;
- DO NOT communicate your card data (e.g. PIN code, CVV2/CVC code - represented by the last 3 digits on the back of the card);
- DO NOT act on impulse. The most successful scams are based on creating the hope that you will make quick financial gains.
