However, the convenience of the electronic bank account has also been counterfeited by criminals!
The Banking Bureau of the Financial Supervisory Commission stated that recently, in the name of government agencies, a fraudulent group has sent a large number of text messages linking to people’s mobile phones. The group uses these illegally obtained personal data to falsely open a bank account as a tool for illegal fraud.
In this regard, an official of the Banking Bureau pointed out that in view of the continuous innovation of domestic fraud methods, in order to avoid fraudulent collection and use of illegally obtained personal information of the public to open electronic accounts, the Financial Supervisory Commission has held several meetings with various units to discuss, in addition to requiring electronic branch operators to implement "Sharing suspicious appearances", "strengthening identity verification measures", "establishing a joint defense mechanism", and asking the Banking Association to revise its self-regulatory norms to reduce cases of fraudulent groups falsely opening electronic check accounts.
The Banking Bureau emphasized that it will continue to supervise the branch operators to help the public prevent fraud, and also calls on the public to verify the authenticity of various unknown information and properly keep highly sensitive personal information (including: ID cards and information contained in them) , bank account password and SMS OTP verification code, etc.).
If there is any doubt about whether the relevant information involves fraud, the public can call the "165" anti-fraud hotline of the Police Department for verification.
