Permanent tsb customers have been receiving text messages and phone calls claiming to be from permanent tsb. These messages contain links such as www.open24securiyonline-review.com, which lead targeted customers to a replicated open24.ie website where they are asked to divulge their banking credentials. Many of these payments are being directed to Payment Apps. Some customers are also receiving follow up calls purporting to be from permanent tsb requesting them to provide a onetime passcode which criminals then use to remove funds from your account.
