Being Not Aware
I was not even aware of this scam until I got an email with subject "BPI Fraud Security" from email address firstname.lastname@example.org (beware of the email ad). Once I've read the message I automatically click the BPI VERIFICATION link, then a new explorer tab was opened as if you were diverted to BPI Express Online Website. And while I was filling up the User Name Info, I was suddenly looked up at the web address tab and it was https://littlejapanusa.com/update... Then I wandered, why is it not a bpi.com.ph site?
Sample of the Phishing Site - Update Personal Info
Then I've realized, I was now scammed and now at phishing site almost gave all my details which in a blink of an eye my card will be hack. Oh well, thanks to my gut feeling that their is something wrong with the site I was diverted. So what I did, I immediately go to legit site of BPI, which I usually does when I'm Logging in then promptly change my password. To my success, it was changed and instantly call the BPI on their trunk 89-100 and report the said matter.
