The latest in the long line of phishing scams has targeted Bank of Ireland’s “365 Online” banking system. An email directing users to a supposed web page on the BOI website instructed whoever got that famed email to enter some personal details; all of which were of course sent to the brains behind the operation.
The rules are quite simple for avoiding being screwed in phishing. Don’t enter any personal details like passwords, credit card numbers, bank account numbers, etc into any website unless you are sure of it’s authenticity. It’s basic common sense people. I hope to update this soon, or as soon as I receive a copy of the email.
