What is Phishing?
Phishing is a scam where hackers ‘fish’ for your personal or account information by using emails claiming to be from your Bank. Unfortunately, these phishing emails and scams are on the increase. These emails may appear genuine, so please be aware!
To protect yourself always remember that Kina Bank will never ask for your personal details or account information via emails, text message, WhatsApp links or telephone. If you suspect you have received a phishing email, please alert us straight away.
Here’s how to help protect yourself online.
