There are plenty of complaints from netizens through social media about the sudden disappearance of their savings in BDO. Victims of fraud attacks are still increasing.
KAMI learned about the BDO's official statement regarding the issue through their Facebook page. BDO said that they are already running an investigation to help their affected clients.
They also reminded cardholders to keep their account information private and be mindful of people requesting their personal account details.
"To our valued clients,
In the recent months, there has been an increased number of clients that have experienced suspicious bank account transactions involving withdrawals and purchases done without their knowledge.
In the 4th quarter of 2017, we have seen an extraordinary rise in fraud attacks towards the entire industry with an increase in the number of claims for unauthorized transactions taking place in other countries.
We are currently running a thorough investigation process that involves tracing individual transactions, checking any irregularities and identifying signals of fraud from millions of valid transactions everyday. This challenging task is done to ensure that all cases are addressed accordingly, and that a resolution is served for all valid cases.
We also wish to remind you to keep your account information private, as well as to be mindful of people requesting for your personal account details through phone, SMS, email, or websites. Unscrupulous individuals and groups are constantly preying on unsuspecting clients to collect their bank information through skimming, phishing, social engineering, and other devious ways.
To help our affected clients, we encourage you to formally file a report via email (email@example.com), its international toll free number (IAC +800-8-631-8000), or its domestic hotline (631-8000).
Your account’s safety and security are our top priority." BDO posted.
Just recently, a Facebook page named Hugot Photographer warns BDO cardholders about emails sent to them. The page said that do not click links sent to them that was asking for their account details.
It is because it was a site made by the hackers that look just like the same as the BDO's main site. Hackers use this to take the card holder's bank account details and spend your savings for themselves.
