Did you receive a threatening email from Bank Hapoalim?

This may be a scam:

Information security company ESET reported last night (Tuesday) that it was an impersonating message aimed at stealing users' credit card information, under the headline "We detected a slight error in your billing information."



It can be seen that in a failed wording and poor Hebrew (which are supposed to light a red light for us), state that "to visit and update the profile immediately, if your account details are not updated within 48 hours, you will have the option to access your account."

That is, they try to motivate the recipients to take action and provide personal information.



Also, no matter what details the surfer enters, the system receives every entry he has made, and is immediately transferred to the problematic page where his credit information is stolen when asked to enter: name, card number, validity, 3-digit code, ATM pin (probably a failed translation 4-digit code pin) and ID number.

Tip for checking the link you received in the email: The link in the email does look "correct" and uses the Bank Hapoalim domain.

But, when you place the mouse on it you can see the address you are coming to, and here you see that this is a site with a different link.

How do you identify an impersonating email?

The information security company ESET Israel points out that it is important to be aware that there are quite a few cybercriminals who want to trap us and steal our information or our financial details.

  • When you receive emails, never enter your details after clicking on a link

  • Enter the service provider's website proactively and even contact us by phone to check that this is indeed a real contact

  • Note a failed wording - if the text is written in Hebrew from right to left

  • Check the sender's address by clicking on the recipient's name
