Email scam targets Nordea

Email scam targets Nordea
Customers banking with Nordea have been the victims of a new fraud attempt.

On Thursday morning Nordea received word that a new fake e-mail had been sent when several customers called to alert the bank.

The message asks Nordea customers go to a website and enter information about their bank accounts and credit cards.

The new scheme is the latest in a string of fraud attempts directed at Swedish bank customers.

“They come at regular intervals and this is nothing specific for Nordea. Customers have started to catch on, so the reactions have decreased,” said Anders Edlund, a spokesperson for Nordea in Sweden, to the TT news agency.

He has no information of anyone being taken in by this latest scam

“A bank will never ask you to provide account information or any codes via email,” said Edlund.
