During these times our thoughts and actions are directed towards "how to preserve our health?" and for this reason we seek information about what we can do in this regard.
But equally important are security, emotional and financial stability. Human nature is complex, and the ill-intentioned people adapt and will try to obtain undeserved benefits from this context, precaution being extremely necessary.
Good to know so you can stay away from scammers and deceivers:
Do not disclose personal and banking data
Under no circumstances on any channels Idea::Bank will never ask for passwords, PIN codes, bank card number, CVV / CVC codes, authorization codes sent on the phone etc.
Be aware for phishing attacks
Do not open unsolicited emails, with unknown sender or suspicious links. Computer viruses can be just as contagious as other viruses.
Attention to unidentified interlocutors
The "accident method" has adapted to the pandemic. State authorities do not ask for money to care for your loved ones.
Credible information sources can save lives
Always think about the rule of communication: "Who says? What does it say? Where does it say? When does he say? Why does it say?”.
Be cafefull on social media
Check the social media accounts you interact with. False social accounts can generate frauds and scams.
Install an online security solution
Online security solutions are useful and necessary, they offer antimalware protection, antispam, antiphising.
Check the NGOs you donate to
The same goes for online merchants from whom you want to purchase products and services. Other people's reviews and comments can save us from unpleasant experiences.
If you have any suspicions about possible fraud, contact the bank and / or the police.
