In recent days a phishing email has been circulating that is supposed to come from Alpha Bank. In case you are a customer of the bank do not fall into the trap. The email tries to redirect you to a fake website that contains a login form to steal your username and password.
The email states:
An internal update has been made to myAlpha Code Due to this update, myAlpha Code must be re-registered. In the meantime, you can not use myAlpha Code.
Click the button below to go to myAlpha Web. Log in and complete the process to re-register at myAlpha.Code
What's new in this update?
When you try to change personal information, you will need to confirm it with an additional myAlpha Code. This additional confirmation is also added for transfers to new beneficiaries. Also from now on you will receive a more detailed myAlpha Code.
What is myAlpha code?
MyAlpha code is a unique 6-digit code used to approve your transactions via e-Banking. You receive it on your mobile phone number as a text message through the Viber application. You will receive the myAlpha code via SMS if you have not installed the Viber application on your mobile or PC or if you have disabled the data on your mobile phone. Alternatively, the myAlpha Code can be generated using the myAlpha Code device.
A golden rule for your security is NOT to click on links in every email, especially if they claim to come from a Bank.
