NEWS: Banks warn of new phone scams targeting business customers

By Alisha Houlihan for AMLi

Banks in Europe have issued warnings about a new scam in which fraudsters are duping customers into allowing remote access to their computers and bank accounts.

The customer gets a phone call from someone claiming to be from Bank of Ireland and they are asked to log into their online banking.

The fraudster then asks the customer to go to another new website address, saying that this is for a live chat service or to verify the customer’s PC, but in reality it allows the fraudster remote access to the customer’s computer.
