Scam Alert: Butterfield Bank Phishing Email

October 31, 2019

The police are once again urging people to be wary of scam emails, saying the latest example is a deceptive e-mail that provides what is purported to be a link for the recipient to verify their online Butterfield bank account.

A police spokesperson said, “Members of the public are reminded to be wary of any e-mail claiming to be from a local bank that requests verification of online banking credentials or username and password details – as such e-mails are undoubtedly fake.

“The latest example is a deceptive e-mail that provides a link for the recipient to verify their online Butterfield bank account. If you receive this e-mail, delete it – do not click on any links or open any attachments.

“These phishing e-mails are used to obtain personal information and other sensitive data and should be ignored.

  1. Laws says:

    when they bust whoever these people are, they should make it law so they are banned from using any bank for personal use, for life. Reap what you sow. If they are foreigners coming here to abuse locals, ban them from deportation and forcibly keep them in prison here for at least 15 years, so they miss going back home and aging with their families. If it is all external foreigners, get interpol or something. Bermuda is a sitting duck of naive rich people. But the poor get robbed in these schemes.
