Banco Provincia sent  an email clarifying that what was circulating was a false message.

What did the Provincial Bank say?

The Bank informed its clients to always verify that the account with which they are interacting is official from Banco Provincia. In the event that the exchange is through the social network Twitter, the bank account must be certified with a blue tick next to the name. In addition, they clarified that they never ask for users, BIP keys or Token keys.

Another recommendation given by the bank was that you must always verify the origin box of the emails received. “Private messages from false profiles that pose as the bank put the security of customers at risk,” added Banco Provincia.

What to do in case of a scam or fraud?

  • It is advisable to file a police report with the data or information that exists about the scam or fraud.
  • Take all the evidence with the complaint to the bank where the account is held so that they can analyze it and decide what is appropriate.
  • From the Central Bank of the Argentine Republic, they recommend contacting the Specialized Cybercrime Fiscal Unit (UFECI) at [email protected] or (+54 11) 5071-0040 / 0041.

Some recommendations
