Scam Alert: UPDRADE YOUR TOKEN DEVICE
« on: Jul 31, 2012, 01:38 PM »
I am quite sure many people would have got this email even though they are not GTB customers because spammers are at rage. I received this message today thinking that it originate from GTB Plc but alas! It is a scam attempt.

There are clear indicators to confirm the illegality of the message.

1. The email address was hyperlined to GeNs@gtbank.com. When you hover your cursor over it before or after attempt to reply, you will see that the email was gtbankonlines@libero.it.

2. The link in the body of the message was shortened with TinyURL [http://tinyurl.com/gtbinfos] to deceive you but when clicked, you will be redirected to:http://www.mileidyviloria.com/gtbplc/GTBplc.htm with cloned GTB platform as shown below:



Read the scam message below and inform your contact about it.
