This bank scam is pretty raw and direct.

Scotia ScamThe message looks pretty official but the fact is that Scotia bank does not send emails like this.

If you are a Scotia Bank customer and bank on line you will see the following message. They don’t do what the email at the top of this story does.

Scotia scam statement

How do you know the message is not from the bank – look at the address of the people it came from. The sender of this message  has created and used a name that looks like it could be from Scotia Bank –

ScotiaBank <Secure.eMail@scotiabanksecure.com

But it isn’t – they have included the word secure to lull you into thinking it is real. Many Scotia customers might get lured in by this.

Pay careful attention to the address an email came from – and if in doubt – don’t!
