Phishing and fraudulent emails are currently circulating in the name of the Bank of Finland and members of the Bank’s staff. These emails may attempt to elicit sensitive personal details or request the recipient to make a payment or bank transfer. The Bank of Finland never sends emails asking a person to submit online banking codes or passwords, or to make payments. If you receive such an email, do not reply to it under any circumstances; simply delete it. Victims of such a fraudulent email are encouraged to contact the police.
