Scam Alert: Here is a New ‘GTBank’ Scam That Many Have Fallen For
Technology evolve daily and so does crime and deceit.
Today i decided to take time out to expose this new method that internet fraudsters have devised to extort money from unsuspecting Nigerians in the guise of it coming from your bank.
Here is an email a friend of mine received recently allegedly from “Guarantee Trust Bank”,
The email looked so real and almost genuine. With a story like that, everyone would want to quickly login and cancel the “registration for our Guarantee Trust Customer Digest monthly bulletin” thereby revealing their banking login details.
If not for some suspicious details (coupled with the fact that He’s learned in this field as he is also blogger) he couldn’t have noticed the flaws proving it is actually a phishing website that he was redirected to to enter his internet banking details.
Here are the things i discovered that one could easily use to classify it as fake.
First, the real email of the sender was “email@example.com” as against the “GeNS@gtbank.com” – GTBanks original email notification sender name which it was disguised as.
Secondly, it contained links (which appeared to be) to particular pages on GTBank’s website which a bank would rarely do as they would rather tell you to login and give you directions to make the required update.
Third, both links (confirmation and cancellation URLs) though seem different but in true fact are actually targeting the same page,100
