    For the Dutchies :

    The Postbank has published a warning that a dangerous email is going around asking to click on a link, give username and password, and your TANcodes.

    This email is not coming from the Postbank.

    In Dutch:

    Beste allemaal,

    De Postbank heeft een ernstige waarschuwing gepubliceerd dat er een Engels-talig email rondgaat waarin wordt gevraagd om op een link te klikken, je gebruikersnaam en wachtwoord in te vullen samen met drie TANcodes.

    Doe dit niet !!!

    Deze email is NIET afkomstig van de Postbank !!!

    Wil je meer weten, ga dan naar www.postbank.nl
    en klik op Belangrijk bericht als u Mijn Postbank.nl of Girotel Online heeft.

    Je vind daar ook aanwijzingen voor het geval je toch gereageerd hebt op een dergelijke email.

    Wees gewaarschuwd !!!!!

    ~grin~ SSK ;)


    I hope that every provider overhere will block this to protect those who have not much knowledge about these kind of things and happily click on everything....

    And I hope that AV's and AT's can put an hand on it...

    Thanks for the warning Jan,

    And an English mail from the Dutch Postbank for Dutch customers
    is of course a bit strange.

    But it is just like they say in Dutch: "Een gewaarschuwd man telt voor twee".

    BTW For Dutch Ebay users they must be carefull as well,
    there are A LOT of fake EBAY mails, which appears to be coming from
    www.ebay.nl, but in fact are not.

    The story is, that you have to update your Ebay profile or else your account
    will be disabled.

    A link is provided to update your profile in www.ebay.nl , but in fact is not going to there.

    So be carefull out there it is a Jungle in the Dutch mountains !

    ;)

    Glad to see the phising-email has been given a lot of publicity. Hope not to many people have responded to it :ninja:

    It may probably lead to the Postbank move to token based authentication, just like all the other Dutch banks.

    And I didn't even get a phishy mail, just the warning mail from the Postbank :'(
