Fraudsters don't usually call to try and steal your codes nowadays. Instead, they send an e-mail asking clients to enter their PIN on a fake website – also known as a phishing site – that closely resembles the real KBC website.
Curious to find out how fraudsters operate these days?
How does antiphishing software work?
Within 30 minutes of being notified of a phishing site's
existence, we add the fake site to the antiphishing software. Clients
who have installed this software will no longer be able to visit the
site and therefore have extra protection.
KBC also has the fake website taken down, but that takes longer.
If you think you have received a suspect e-mail purporting to come
from KBC, forward it immediately to email@example.com.
This way, you not only help KBC in the fight against phishing, but other clients too!
