Beware of Santander Bank "Urgent Notification-Safeguard Your Account" or "Passcode has been Entered Incorrectly" Phishing Scam

The email message below with the subject: "Urgent Notification (Safeguard Your Account)" or "Passcode has been entered incorrectly multiple times, Please login to your account," is a phishing scam. The fake email message was not sent by Santander Bank, but by cyber-criminals. Therefore, the instructions in the fake message should not be followed and the links in it should never be clicked. The links will take you to a fake Santander Bank website created by cybercriminals to trick potential victims into stealing their Santander Bank's username and password, and other personal and financial information. It is not recommended to click on a link in an email message to sign into an online account. Therefore, online users should go directly to their online account providers' websites and sign into their accounts from there.
