“Your Bankia account has been blocked” thus begins the new SMS scam that is reaching more and more users. Accompanied by a link, it is how scammers would try to get our bank keys.
SMS is a method of communication that is rarely used at present, nowadays they are usually used to confirm our telephone number, rather than to talk to someone through them.
SMS scams are quite common In this case, the goal of the scam is to try to trick users who have an account banking at Bankia. The telephone number since we received the scam message corresponds to a private number and nothing distinguishing that offers us the confidence that it is our bank.
The message includes a link with a URL totally different from that of Bankia since it does not correspond at all to the entity bank in question. In this case, when clicking on the link, Google Chrome alerts us that it is an unsafe website, a fact that is not common if We will meet at the Bankia login.
If we don't get the warning that it is an unsafe website, the interface would be a carbon copy of the one used by the bankso that in this way, fraudsters get our bank codes and can make movements in our account and profit at our expense.
If we have fallen for the scam, we recommend get in touch with Bankia as soon as possible and notify the police. There are many scams that arrive via SMS asking that we have to pay an amount of money as in the case of the Post Office scam.
