Manila, Philippines – Pinalawig pa ng National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) ang pagbabantay sa phishing activities na sinasabing bumibiktima sa ilang mga guro, ayon kay Department of Justice (DOJ) Secretary Menardo I. Guevarra.

“The NBI is already looking into phishing of bank accounts on a broader scale, but I am minded to issue a separate directive to the NBI in the case of the teacher victims,” ani Guevarra.

Inilarawan ng DOJ-Office of Cybercrime (DOJ-OOC) ang phishing, vishing, at smishing bilang “forms of cybercrimes in which the perpetrator posing as a legitimate institution, such as a bank, online payment site, or an online commerce site, devises a message through electronic, phone call, or text message” na may layuning “luring individuals into providing sensitive data, such as personally identifiable information, banking and credit card details, and usernames and passwords.”

Noong Lunes, Enero 24, inireport ng Land Bank of the Philippines (LBP) na ilang guro na may account sa kanila ay nabiktima ng phishing.

“The bank has already reached out to the affected customers and is working on the resolution of these isolated cases at the soonest possible time,” lahad ng LBP.

 “Refrain from opening suspicious emails, links and attachments, and sharing your account and personal information. Official Landbank representatives will never ask for the critical financial information of customers,” paalala pa ng pamunuan. RNT/FGDC
