How to Protect Yourself from internet fraud
Aruba Bank Security Tips – Be careful when providing personal informationPlease be careful when you receive unsolicited e-mails, referrals to websites or web pages which look like it comes from Aruba Bank (or a trusted organization) and asks you to provide your personal, financial or account information. There are many types of e-mail fraud; you may be asked to supply this information by replying to the email, fill out a separate form attached to the e-mail, or by visiting a phony website using a link in the e-mail message. The above are the most common types of online fraud and are called phishing and spoofing. Online criminals are using these tools to steal your personal, financial, or account information. At Aruba Bank keeping your financial and personal information secure and confidential is one of our most important responsibilities. We value the trust you have placed in us and will always work towards handling your information with care. Therefore we will never ask you to submit or verify any confidential personal information in response to an e-mail.
Please reportIf you receive any suspicious e-mail, referral to an unknown website, or a pop-up window that informs you that it is from Aruba Bank N.V. and/or ask for personal information, please report this to us immediately. Forward or e-mail the information to firstname.lastname@example.org
