Nordea Bank Customers Warned of Fraudulent E-mail Message

The Finnish Communications Regulatory authority estimates that tens of thousands of customers of Nordea Bank have received a fraudulent e-mail message. The English-language message urges customers to respond to the mail, providing their Internet banking user codes and passwords.

Atte Palomäki, who is responsible for Nordea communications in Finland, says that the message is similar to one that was sent to the bank's Swedish customers earlier in the month.

The Communications Regulatory Authority has asked Internet service providers to take measures to block further mailings of the message, which it sees as an amateurish attempt at fraud.

Banks never ask for customers' confidential information by e-mail. So far, there is no indication that any recipients of the message would have fallen for the scam.
