Dear Open24 Customer,
In order to help us protect our main line of defense against intruders; you will need to update your account through our secured server, in line to safe internet banking regulatory Requirements.
To proceed, simply follow the link below:
The link in the fake Open24 / Permanent TSB goes to a fake webpage created by cyber-criminals on a compromised website, to trick their potential victims into entering your personal and banking information on it. If the potential victims enter their information on the fake website, it will be sent to the cyber-criminals behind the phishing email message, who will use it to hijack the victims’ accounts. They (cyber-criminals) may steal the victims’ money and use their accounts fraudulently.
Never click on a link in an email message to sign into your online banking account or update your banking account’s information. Open24 / Permanent TSB customers should always go to https://www.open24.ie/ to sign into accounts or update their account information.
