Nordea customers warned over emails

Swedish customers of bank Nordea are being warned about a new attempt by criminal to trick them into handing over their Internet banking log-in details.

Many customers of the bank have received emails asking them to enter their details on a particular website. The email claims that the process is part of an upgrade of Nordea’s virus protection.

The email is written in poor Swedish and incorrectly refers to the bank as ‘Nordea Sweden AG’. The link contained in the email to the supposed Nordea website is broken.

Nordea customers have been the subject of a string of bluff emails over the past year.

“But the last few times, nobody has fallen for it,” said Nordea spokesman Boo Ehlin.

“Our customers have learned that the emails are not from us.”
