BSP Issues Public Warning Against Scam Emails


02 April 2019, Apia Samoa. Bank South Pacific  (BSP) Samoa have issued a notice to warn the public of the growing number of email scams that could jeopardize private information such as log on credentials for bank cards.

The types of scams have been identified as offers to work at home online, prizes for lottery wins, donations for disasters, warnings about your bank account and even “love scams that target single or lonely people.”

BSP Bank says that one sign to look out for is that “many scams have grammatical errors or spelling errors”.

BSP Samoa Country Manager Taituuga Maryann Lameko-Vaai warns customers to be diligent and ask for help if they come across an email they are unsure about.

“We call on our customers to please be careful and not click on emails that look suspicious. If in doubt, please let me know or contact the bank on 66100.”
