4 comments on “How To Identify Online Bank Account Scams

  1. I worry that I may have opened an account with an online fraudulent bank. After I opened the account I attempted to transfer some money and I was hit with a funding clearance code before the transfer would occur. When I tried to call the bank, the message did not include the name of the institution- just a request to leave name and number. Does anyone know if Cardiff trust limited is a real institution?

    1. Deborah, we would recommend you contact your primary financial institution and discuss the specific details of your transaction with them.

  2. Ii have an account with this online bank and they sent me my username and password and the account have $4.5 million in it. This must be fake hey? They want me to pay for a cot number??

    1. There area couple of red flags here: 1) A bank may provide a temporary code to reset your password, but banks do not “know” your password – no one should know your password, except for you! 2) “COT” numbers are routinely used as part of wire fraud scams. It is not authorized by any bank.
