Hey bunqers 🌈
bunq will never ask for your personal data outside of the bunq app, but recently we’ve spotted a couple of websites pretending to be bunq. These websites use a phishing email informing you of irregularities on your bunq account.
Please, make sure to be careful with your personal data and make sure to never share it with third parties. Currently our team is taking the actions required to have the websites taken down and initiate legal actions.
What do the Phishing attempts look like?
Fraudsters can email you pretending to be bunq and ask you to log in to your account by clicking on a link they shared with you. Those links are pages created by fraudsters copying bunq’s website, and their goal is to trick you into giving away your credentials and security code, so they can steal this information to gain illegal access to your account.
Our domain name is bunq.com. If you don’t see it in the URL address of the webpage, this means that link is not managed by bunq. Any variations such as bunq.xxx.com, a.id/abcd-bunq or abcd.buzz/bunq are all fake. If you see them, please report them here. Examples:
Here is an example of what a fake email message looks like:
How the fraudsters gain access to your account?
Be sure not to click on the link you receive and avoid sharing your personal information or magic links. If you do so, the fraudsters will have access to your personal info and can login in your account. If this happens, please report to us immediately here
What will happen next?
We’ve already reported the scams to our relevant teams and the operational teams of the most widely used web browsers. They are currently taking the needed action to keep everyone secure.
