"The Association of Banks, in order to protect the interests of bank customers, has released the statement to warn them not to enter their Internet bank user name and password on the websites of online credit companies,” reads the statement.
According to the statement, there have recently been cases when online credit companies offered their clients to enter in their Internet bank user names and passwords on the website.
“This encourages the voluntary handover of information about the user name and password to a third party. This scheme is not a safe practice.”
“Make sure that you are on the website of your provider bank and only after it enter you data,” reads the statement.
“This way, the user agrees and willingly hands over their financial management to third party bank accounts. Such a scheme does not establish safe practice.
“We want to warn customers of the banks to refrain from any step of this type.
“Look at the address bar, make sure that you are on your bank's website and then enter your user name and password. Internet data transfers to third parties gives them the opportunity to carry out unauthorized transactions,” reads the statement.
