Warning about false Danske bank messages

City of London Police hasn’t issued any alerts about fake messages from Danske Bank.

We are aware of a rumour currently circulating via WhatsApp, SMS and social media which references the City of London Police Fraud Team and claims that Danske Bank customers are being targeted by a particular text message (smishing) scam. The content of this message is false.

However, smishing scams are common. Don’t click on the links or attachments in any suspicious emails or texts, and never respond to messages that ask for your personal or financial details. It’s important to remember that your bank would never ask you to move money out of your account, or contact you out of the blue and ask for details such as your full banking password or PIN.

Anyone who has divulged information after receiving this type of message should contact their Bank immediately.
