A number of smishing (text) scams are in circulation with various messages and calls to action. See following example:
"PTSB: Your Open24 account will be put on hold due to a breach of our terms and conditions. To restore visit support-ptsb.com urgent action needed. Reference: #insert number"
Permanent tsb will never provide website links (URLs) when communicating with our customers. It is also advised that customers keep a record of all permanent tsb websites and links in order to avoid falling victim of phishing sites. Our main websites are as follows (with fake link comparisons):
|Real link||Fraudulent link|
Permanent tsb will never attach bare links to text messages (such as www.example.com). Instead, we will always hyperlink the text. Please note: The link in the above message reads ".com". All permanent tsb websites use ".ie".
