Company BancoEstado communicated through social networks a fake e-mail that circulates these days.
The email says that "for security reasons, we've blocked your online banking code and Transfer Card keys to run over the Internet, which is due to preventive measures taken by the bank, which is why we need to verify the data."
BancoEstado warns its clients that it is attempted fraud, and if you receive mail, you must ignore it.

At the same time they point out to the bank in their emails they never send references. "False emails, phishing, contain links that lead to sites that steal your keys," they say.
For greater security, BancoEstado offers these three tips:
- Do not connect to online banking from shared computers, cybernetics, or public wireless networks because they could contain viruses that capture keys and user data.
- The BancoEstado emails are matched by their surname and surname.· If you receive a warning message from people or institutions that you do not have links to, containing files, videos, or documents, do not open, save or download them as it is a strategy used by malicious people to pollute your computer
- Use antivirus software and effective antispyware on your computer, worrying that it is active and always updated. Always activate the firewall or firewall.
