Protecting your financial identity

Advance Fee Fraud

Don’t accept suspicious transfers to your bank account

In advance fee frauds, fraudsters seek your permission to transfer funds to your account from a wealthy benefactor.

In such cases, you will be approached through a letter, fax, email or telephone from someone claiming to be a senior bank official. Victims are repeatedly requested to part with sums of money in order to help the transfer process and, as the fraud progresses, a considerable amount of money is lost. The promised transfer, of course, never happens.


  • Always be wary of unsolicited emails offering large sums of money.
  • Inform suspicious activities to our Contact Centre on 600 50 2030.


  • Give out your Card number, PIN or account information through unsolicited emails.
  • Transfer money as instructed in these emails.
  • Respond to suspicious emails.
