Ever received an email from eBay asking you to verify your account? Or from Gmail warning you to login otherwise your account will be suspended? How many times have you gotten a supposed Paypal email asking reactivation because your account has been hacked?
The Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) has constantly been issuing a warning to users of BPI ExpressOnline (BPI EOL), its online banking facility, against phishing emails. Phishing — pronounced “fishing” as in “fishing for information” — is a type of deception designed to steal one’s personal data such as credit card numbers, passwords, and account login information.
Don’t be duped by scammers in the Philippines! Report them to the authorities and send them to jail!
Don’t be deceived by an email supposedly sent by Banco de Oro (BDO) telling you to “request a new card”!

With most Filipino victims in the Visayas and Mindanao still reeling from the impact of the large-scale Aman Futures Group investment scam, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) recently stepped up and forewarned the public against investing in three companies which appear to have makings of a possible Ponzi scheme.
Last month, the SEC issued a notice to the public that Ads Zens Broker Corp., Visioner2020 International Traders Inc., and Reyality Investment Corp. appear to be “high-yield, high-risk investment which may turn out as a fraudulent scheme.”
Aman Futures Group. For the 15,000-or-so Filipinos who are just beginning to accept the fact that they have lost their hard-earned money, these three words are now synonymous with “nightmare.” Indeed, their current plight is a frightening one they wish they have never gotten themselves into. But what can they do now?
An “Enhanced Security Update” email supposedly coming from the UnionBank of the Philippines is making the rounds asking you to log in to your online banking account. But the moment you do so, you might lose your cash to scammers. The email is actually a phishing email designed to steal your login details in order to hack your account.
