Protect Yourself from FraudSecurity Information
1. Fraudulent / phishing e-mails will often tell you that they require or demand that you update or confirm your account details in the subject field.
Airdrie Savings Bank will NEVER ask you to update any information by e-mail.
2. Fraudulent e-mails are not normally addressed to you personally as all the fraudsters know about you is your e-mail address. It may be addressed to 'Dear Valued Customer' or something equally impersonal.
3. Fraudulent e-mails will often include a link that you are asked to click on to take you to the site. The site may look genuine but be assured it is not. The link in the e-mail may be 'spoofed' to look like a genuine Airdrie Savings Bank e-mail address but if you hover over the link it will show the real address you will be directed to in the status bar at the bottom of the window.
NEVER follow a link to Internet Banking. Always type www.airdriesavingsbank.com into your browser's address bar and access Internet Banking that way.
4. If you do visit a website after clicking on a link in a phishing e-mail, there are many ways of disguising the true location of a fake website in the address bar. The site address may start with the genuine site's domain name (www.airdriesavingsbank...), but that is no guarantee that it points to the real site.
5. Many of the links from these fake pages may actually go to the genuine website, but don't be fooled.
6. Fraudulent e-mails are often written by people without a good grasp of the English language. There will often be spelling and grammatical errors
