Beware​ of​ phishing​ emails!

We​ are​ warning​ our​ valued​ customers​ to​ be​ extra​ vigilant​ regarding​ any​ emails​ or​ SMS​ claiming​ to​ come​ from​ ABA​ Bank,​ regardless​ of​ how​ genuine​ they​ may​ appear.

Phishing​ scammers​ try​ to​ pretend​ looking​ or​ sounding​ like​ representative​ of​ ABA​ Bank,​ but​ here​ is​ how​ you​ can​ easily​ recognize​ that​ you​ are​ being​ targeted​ by​ a​ scammer​ (see​ the​ sample​ of​ a​ phishing​ email​ below):

  • Pay​ great​ attention​ to​ the​ email​ address​ that​ is​ used​ to​ contact​ you;​ sometimes,​ it​ is​ just​ one​ letter​ that​ differs​ the​ scamming​ email​ address​ from​ the​ real​ one.​ Remember​ that​ we​ neither​ send​ you​ emails​ from​ ababakn.com,​ advancebankasia.com,​ ababankofasla.com,​ advancebankofasia.com,​ ababnkofasla.com,​ accountant.com,​ ababcambodia.org,​ ababankonline.com,​ ababkonline.com,​ ababnk.com,​ abacamb.com,​ advancedbankasia.com​ or​ other​ similar​ addresses,​ nor​ assign​ third​ parties​ to​ contact​ you​ to​ claim​ donation​ prizes,​ inheritance,​ gifts,​ etc.​ Our​ official​ emails​ come​ from​ XYZ@ababank.com​ domain​ only!
  • The​ content​ of​ the​ email​ starts​ with​ an​ intimidating​ message​ or​ urges​ you​ to​ click​ the​ link​ /​ download​ an​ attachment.
  • The​ author​ of​ the​ email​ doesn’t​ spell​ your​ name​ correctly​ or​ doesn’t​ address​ you​ by​ name​ at​ all.
  • The​ email​ signature​ contains​ a​ link​ that​ doesn’t​ have​ any​ connection​ to​ ABA.

Such​ activities​ are​ frequently​ used​ by​ criminals​ to​ convince​ victims​ to​ hand​ them​ over​ such​ information​ as​ card​ or​ bank​ account​ numbers,​ passwords​ and​ log​ on​ details,​ which​ can​ be​ used​ to​ commit​ fraud.​ Please​ remember​ that​ ABA​ Bank​ will​ never​ send​ you​ an​ email,​ SMS​ or​ a​ website​ link​ requesting​ you​ to​ enter​ your​ card​ number,​ iBanking​ password​ or​ other​ confidential​ details.

If​ you​ received​ a​ suspicious​ email​ or​ SMS​ pretending​ to​ come​ from​ ABA​ Bank​ and​ you​ cannot​ verify​ its​ authenticity,​ please​ immediately​ report​ us​ at​ info(at)ababank.com.​ If​ you​ think​ you​ may​ have​ fallen​ victim​ to​ phishing​ or​ any​ other​ type​ of​ online​ fraud,​ please​ call​ us​ as​ soon​ as​ possible​ at​ +855​ 23​ 225​ 333.

Securely​ yours,
ABA Bank
