In our effort to protect clients’ interests, we would like to bring your attention to an increase in “phishing” scams in recent months. “Phishing” involves the use of unsolicited e-mails and/or fraudulent websites to trick customers of financial institutions into disclosing confidential personal details such as user-names and passwords.
   
  Techniques used include, but are not limited to:
   
 
  • Use of false e-mail addresses, logos and graphics to mislead the customer into accepting the validity of e-mails and websites;
  • False domain names that appear similar to the real financial institutions;
  • Use of hyperlinks and embedded forms in false e-mail addresses and websites to request for personal and confidential information.
   
  Some preventive measures against “Phishing” are listed below:
   
 
  • Never reveal your password to anyone. UOBKH Staff will never request for your password.
  • Be suspicious of any unsolicited requests for your personal details.
  • Do not reply to or click on links within unsolicited e-mails that have been sent to you.
  • When accessing our website, always type http://www.uobkayhian.com.sg/ into your brower’s address bar.
   
  Should you receive any suspicious e-mails and/or have inadvertently accessed any fraudulent websites, please contact our Client Services Department immediately at +65 6536 9338 for further verification before taking any action.
