The banking group has issued a warning and is urging its customers to be more vigilant due to increasing banking scams in the country.
“In an attempt to steal personal details, fraudsters often send emails with attachments purporting to be a payment notification or bank statements,” FNB said in a note on its website.
FNB added that fraudsters are notorious for sending emails, often with links or attachments purporting to be a payment notification or bank statement (see example below).
In this case the email requests you to redeem an epayment from SARS.
