BRIEF: Costa Rican banks warn of email scam


Jan 22, 2013 (The Tico Times - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) -- The Costa Rican Banking Association (ABC) issued an alert about the circulation of a fake email, which recommends bank customers "to download a free security software to remove phishing threats." According to a release, the email indicates that the software (Etterblock) will be mandatory to perform online transactions in all banks starting Jan. 25.

ABC stated that none of the country's banks is currently offering any software, or requesting personal information from its customers.

They also recommend contacting a security specialist with each bank or calling ABC at: 2253-2898 (Spanish only).
