Beware of Covid-19 Phishing Scams

Fraudsters are known to take advantage during periods of change and uncertainty. They may pretend to be legitimate merchants selling masks or other products to entice customers into clicking links to make payments and reveal their banking details such as One-Time-PIN (OTPs) on fake websites.

We must all be vigilant when it comes to suspicious activities and take the necessary precaution to safeguard ourself from phishing:

  • Do not allow yourself to be rushed and pressured into executing a banking related request.
  • Do not respond to unsolicited links or emails.
  • Do listen to your instincts. Be prepared to question anything that feels wrong and verify before making any transactions.
  • Do not ever share your OTP / account number /CVV/ expiry date with any caller.
  • Do not answer unknown callers .
  • Verify the legitimacy of any agency calling you by a quick online search

At Citi, we would never ask for your personal information or for you to provide banking details such as PINs or passwords via social media or email.

Always enter the Citibank website address www.citibank.com.my or "www.citigold.com.my" directly into your browser address bar before you log in to ensure that you are on the legitimate Citibank website. For more security tips, kindly refer to www.citibank.com.my/security
