Even in times of global coronavirus pandemic there are scammers who are making every effort to take advantage of the situation. Slovenská sporiteľňa warns its clients that they should watch out for scam emails which are used by scammers to obtain login passwords for electronic banking. These scammers have also created a false webpage resembling the original login page for George, electronic banking of Slovenská sporiteľňa. We would therefore like to ask clients to be careful and avoid clicking on links in suspicious emails. The bank never requests information on accounts, telephone numbers, login data, passwords for electronic banking and payment cards.
It may seem that the scam email is sent by Slovenská sporiteľňa or George but after inspecting the email closely, it becomes clear that it’s a false email address. The subject of the email is “Platba vratena (payment rejected)”. The email is in Slovak language and it asks the client to click on the link and enter confidential data. We recommend deleting this email (without opening it). The email address of the sender or the subject of the email may change. Scam emails also include a link to a false webpage which resembles the login page of George. However, when looking at the address bar, it’s clear that it’s a scam.
The bank is actively monitoring all scam attempts and in case it identifies suspicious activities, it undertakes steps for damage prevention.
