Attention all Bank of Ireland customers




We got this off our main Anti-Virus partners today:

ESET Ireland warns that Irish computers are being targeted by an email scam involving the name of the Bank of Ireland and redirecting to a fraudulent Polish address.
ESET Ireland is regularly monitoring email scams targeting Irish mailboxes.


In the past few days we have seen an increased frequency of the following message:

Subject: Security Measures * 806600
Date: 17 Feb 2015 10:57:57 +0200
From: Bank.of.Ireland [365]
Dear Account Owner,
365 Bank.of.Ireland apologizes for the inconvenience but you have been chosen randomly by our security system for routine checks of your account.
To continue to use your account for online payments and other methods of purchase, please follow the steps:

However, the link which appears to be a “Bank of Ireland” one actually redirects to, which is a Polish web address, and from there to another with an Australian domain name, which displays a forged Bank of Ireland website, which requests the user to “sign in” with their online banking details, therefore handing them over to the cybercriminals for further abuse.

If you have any questions or your worried something like this has happened or could happen to you, give us a call in the office on 051-560767. Better to be safe than sorry!
