Phishing Scam - "Tesco Bank Changes to Interest Rate"

The email message below: "Tesco Bank Changes to Interest Rate," which asks the recipients to open the attached e-document to view Tesco Bank interest rate changes, is a phishing scam created to trick the email recipients into visiting a fake or phishing Tesco Bank website designed to steal their username, password, personal and financial information, which they (cyber-criminals) will use to hijack their accounts.

The Phishing Email Message

Dear Customer,

View attached eDocument to access recent changes

If the fake attached document is open, it will take the recipients to a fake web page that will ask them to click on a link to view Tesco Bank recent interest rate changes. If the link is clicked, it will take the potential victims to a fake Tesco Bank website, which will ask them for their username, password, security code, personal and financial information.

If the requested information is entered, it will be sent to the cybercriminals behind the scam. Once they have the information, they will use it to hijack the victims' accounts, steal their money and use the accounts for fraudulent purposes.

If you have already followed the instructions in the email message and have entered your information on the fake website, please change your Tesco Bamk password immediately and contact them.

To avoid getting tricked by these phishing scams, never click on a link in an email message to sign into your account. Always go to your bank's website directly and sign into your account from there.
