Security Advisory Notice - "Phishing" scam

n our effort to protect clients’ interests, we would like to bring your attention to an increase in “phishing” scams in recent months. “Phishing” involves the use of unsolicited e-mails and/or fraudulent websites to trick customers of financial institutions into disclosing confidential personal details such as user-names and passwords.

    Techniques used include, but are not limited to:
  • Use of false e-mail addresses, logos and graphics to mislead the customer into accepting the validity of e-mails and websites;
  • False domain names that appear similar to the real financial institutions;
  • Use of hyperlinks and embedded forms in false e-mail addresses and websites to request for personal and confidential information.
    Some preventive measures against “Phishing” are listed below:
  • Never reveal your password to anyone. UOBKH Staff will never request for your password.
  • Be suspicious of any unsolicited requests for your personal details.
  • Do not reply to or click on links within unsolicited e-mails that have been sent to you.

Should you receive any suspicious e-mails and/or have inadvertently accessed any fraudulent websites, please contact our Client Services Department immediately at (852) 2136 1818 for further verification before taking any action.
