BPI Express Phishing Scam

 Analysis by: Jona Pereira

TrendLabs engineers spotted a phishing email that mimics the Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) express alert. It informs recipients that BPI online banking has upgraded. It then asks users to view the message by clicking the link. Clicking the URL directs users to a spoofed site that asks for user information such as credit card numbers, passwords, and other sensitive information.
