  • If you receive invoices by email, independently confirm that the account details are correct prior to payment.
  • Be vigilant in opening all emails which contain links or attachments, even from trusted sources. Don’t click on links in spam emails or other emails that you were not expecting. Rabobank will never send you emails asking to verify your details, nor will we ask you to open any attachments.
  • Check your account details on a regular basis. If you notice any unexpected activity either on your account or your computer, contact us immediately on the numbers below.
  • Don’t visit suspicious sites, these will often run exploits which could infect your computer with malware.
  • Ensure that you have an up to date antivirus program installed on both your computer and Android phone, and that you are performing regular scans.
  • Don't trust unusual phone calls or emails from people or companies that you were not expecting.
  • Don't share your Login ID, Password, Token Codes or PINs with anyone. Use a strong password and wherever possible use two factor authentication to login to the online services that you are using.
  • Be aware of identity fraud, only share your personal information with people and companies you trust.
  • Make sure that you are using a currently supported operating system and internet browser. Ensure automatic updates are turned on.

'Phishing' or fake emails

Criminals work in various ways to steal your identity. Phishing, pronounced 'fishing', is the term coined by hackers who imitate legitimate companies in emails to entice people to share passwords or credit card numbers.

An email is broadcast from a fake server address, pretending to be a real company or financial institution, containing an invitation to verify or to enter username or password. The fake website looks like the real one from the financial institution.

This leads to identity theft: criminals adopt the identity of the holder of the online bank account or credit card and with that they can make payments in name of the genuine holder.
