New phishing tactic: Landbank warns against scammers using google ads

Land Bank of the Philippines (Landbank) has warned its clients and the general public not to fall victim to a new scam using Google ads which contain a malicious link which once clicked would lead to a phishing website.

“Landbank has not placed any ads on Google. The Bank is currently working with Google to bring down these misleading ads the soonest time possible,” the government financial institution (GFI) said in a statement on Friday.

The fake Landbank website tricks account holders into giving up their personal and financial information.

The bank advised its clients to directly visit its official website at www.landbank.com and to use the available links within the website to access the bank’s digital banking channels.

These channels include the official iAccess site, www.lbpiaccess.com, Landbank said.

“The Landbank Mobile Banking App (MBA) can also be used for safer online transactions,” it added.

Landbank advised the public “to remain vigilant against phishing scams and all other forms of online banking fraud.”

“Please do not open suspicious e-mails, links and attachments, and never share your account and personal information to anyone. Official Landbank representatives will never ask for critical financial and banking information from our customers,” it said. (PNA)
