We’ve received reports of a phishing email targeting Heritage Bank members.
The email uses Heritage Bank branding and states that your account has been locked due to unsuccessful login attempts. It asks you to click on the ‘Verify Now’ button in order to unlock your account and confirm your personal details.
These fake emails are designed to capture personal information such as your Heritage member number, passwords and contact information. Those who unsuspectingly click on the link and share information may later discover their Heritage Online account has been accessed by unauthorised persons.
An example of this email is below.
