New Phishing Attacks on Indian Bank Customers

A major phishing attack has been launched against Indian banking customers by the administrator of a hitherto unknown organization called the Indian Bank Association (IBA). The administratorof this organization has sent out a warningagainst money laundering and its evil and in pretty strong language, urges you to update your records on your bank. The administrator has also kindly given you links to all the major Indian banks’ websites.
Very neat, isn’t it?

As you can see from this screenshot, none of the Web of Trust icons are colored in the friendly safegreen color. The grayed out circle with a question mark indicates that the link is an unknown site that has not been marked down or up by the community. Which probably means that they are recent sites. In the context of a banking site, that means unsafe.

Clicking on any of the links in that email sends you to a page of a domain named q3videomarketing.com’.

  1. Again, this old and tired bluff used by these criminals to get the hard-earned money from unsuspecting and unknowledgeable people. Remember: eMail is not secure and NO DECENT bank will ever use email to confirm your account details. These scams anger me, just as all rip-offs do.
