Scam using OST trading account

Reply
Super Contributor
Have now received 2 EMails in last week from [email protected] asking for absolute all detailes regarding my internet bank account; pin nr, password, acc nr, all!!! They say that my OST online account will be closed unless I provide this info so as to update the data base. Just hope people dont fall for this scam, so take note.

They can't draw money out your OST account but they can buy and sell shares for you. Maybe they will buy some good shares, you never know give it a try lol

Thanks for the advice, but prefer to make my own mistakes. However did change my OST password. Question is, how did they know that I have an OST account?

either send it out to random people trying to target ost clients or they saw you post your email on here then it's an insider joke ?

I download email headers first then choose emails I want to receive. If I don't know name or it looks vaguely suspicious I delete it on server. A bit tedious but so much safer.

Just ignore it. I get dozens every day. Banks will never request you info online.
