It's a good idea to be wary of any requests (via email, phone or otherwise) to change beneficiary banking details or send a payment to a new beneficiary. The request may be an attempt to divert funds to a fraudulent account.
Fraudulent requests may be disguised as originating from a supplier and ask that you change the supplier’s bank account information.
As a precaution, always take the extra step of checking directly with your supplier through an alternative communication method outside of the email environment, such as a phone call to a trusted source in their company, to confirm that the change request is genuine.
In some cases, the fraudulent request to change supplier information or make a payment to an unfamiliar account supposedly comes from your organisation’s CEO, President or other administrator.
When reviewing any type of payment instructions from an internal source, ensure the request uses your organisation’s official channels and follows authorised processes and procedures.
Staying informed about online security risks enables you to stay vigilant against fraud and helps keep you protected.

Vigilance is vital to detecting and preventing internet banking fraud. With online fraud becoming more sophisticated, it is important to stay informed on what fraud looks like and how you can protect your organisation from fraudulent activity.
The following types of experiences should be taken seriously and reported to your local DNBCnet support team immediately:
Phishing emails encourage individuals to divulge personal information such as banking security credentials or request that you click “download” links which could leave you vulnerable to malware. Learn how to protect your accounts.
Fraudsters might send you an email that looks like it comes from us and it might contain a link to a website that looks like this one. When you try to log on, they can steal your password. They could also ask you to make a phone call or reply by email.
Criminals are good at making their emails and websites look realistic. But you can often spot the fake ones:
Strange looking email or web addresses
Poor design, typos or bad spelling
They ask you to do something unusual
A site doesn't display the padlock symbol in the address bar when you log in
When opening an email, please remember:
DNBC Financial Europe will not display your personal information in emails or ask you to provide any personal information including your username, password and/or security code by email
If in doubt, stop. Don't click on any links. Don't open any attachments. Just forward the email to [email protected]
Never access internet banking through hyperlinks embedded in emails or other potentially untrustworthy sources
Social Engineering describes the tactics used by fraudsters to manipulate people into divulging confidential information and/or performing actions online that put them at risk. Being vigilant against this type of fraud helps keep you protected.
What "Social Engineering" might look like
Fraudsters may contact you pretending to be from an institution you deal with (such as DNBC Financial Europe), an organisation of authority, a vendor/supplier, or even an individual within your company. They could direct you to perform actions that will allow them to send unauthorised payments from your account. This can include providing numbers displayed on your Security Device or pushing the yellow button.
DNBC Financial Europe will never request information that could be used to make a payment (such as account numbers, passwords, security device details other than the serial number on the back, etc)
Under no circumstances will DNBC Financial Europe ever ask you to ask you to divulge any of your security details over the phone, by text message or via email
If you are ever doubtful about your DNBCnet activities or the authenticity of incoming telephone calls purporting to be from DNBC Financial Europe, please call your local DNBCnet Support Centre or your DNBCnet Representative for further verification.
You can rest assured that DNBCnet is a secure channel that is rigorously monitored to protect our customers. You can help us keep fraud out of business by being cautious when conducting transactions online and protecting yourself with the latest anti-virus software.
Anti-virus software protects you, your privacy and your money. You need to install anti-virus software if you don't have any already.
Viruses steal personal information, take over your PC, pop up unwanted adverts and they can even use your computer to attack other people's computers.
You may also hear them called malware, trojans, spyware or adware. Anti-virus software protects you against all of them.
Anti-virus software protects you, your privacy and your money.
To work properly, anti-virus software requires that you download updates on a regular basis. Out-of-date anti-virus software will have flaws that could leave you vulnerable to fraud.
When downloading any anti-virus software, make sure you are accessing the download from a genuine site. There are many fake products claiming to protect your computer but which may actually infect it with viruses.
It is harder for viruses to infect updated software. Criminals who create viruses take advantage of weaknesses in software to infect computers. Software companies fix weaknesses with free downloadable updates. It is a good idea that you install updates for your software as soon as they become available.
