List of Latest Phishing Attacks and How to Stop the Threat

Here's a compilation of the latest phishing attacks designed to "lure" online banking customers into providing their username and password to fraudsters. 

Of course, if banks would stop using username and password log-in, and graduate to a more secure, two factor that requires users to swipe their bank issued card, and enter their bank issued PIN, (replicate what they do at an ATM machine) then they would, at the same time,  eliminate phishing altogether. 

With HomeATM's PCI 2.0 Certified Terminal and PIN Entry Device, Internet banking has never been more secure.

Banks can enhance their users onlineexperience and security with strong two-factor authentication per theFFIEC directive, guard against many forms of cyber attacks and malwareand reinforce the financial institutions’ brand. 

In addition, our terminal eliminates the threat of cloned cards, the threat of DNS Hijacking, the threat of cloned websites and "enables" online banking customers to securely transfer money, whether it be account to account (A2A) person-to-person (P2P), pay bills, and securely transact online. 

The 2 best reasons (besides E2E Encryption, 2FA and PCI 2.0 Certification) 2 choose HomeATM are:

1. There is no other authentication device on the market with a PCI 2.0 Certified PIN Entry Device (PED).
2. HomeATM's terminal, manufactured by HomeATM, "WITH a built-in PED" costs significantly less than competitors (i.e. Magento) who offer their product  "WITHOUT a PED."

For a limited time, you can get 2 of ours for the price of 1 Magenta.  For more information, please email us.
