Beware of the website www1.winghghk.com.

According to a release, Wing Hang Bank would like to alert its customers to a fraudulent internet website at the domain name of www1.winghghk.com.

The fraudulent website attempts to replicate the Wing Hang eBanking services pages of Wing Hang Bank's website. The site contains a hyperlink to a logon page, which requests customers to input their online banking User ID and Password.

Wing Hang Bank would like to remind customers to ensure they are connected to the genuine Wing Hang Bank website before keying in any confidential personal data.

Login page of Wing Hang eBanking services has a security lock at the top right-hand corner of the browser, which provides details confirming the authentication of the site.

Wing Hang Bank suggests customers to always type www.whbhk.com into the browser address bar or use favorites / bookmarks to access the Wing Hang Bank website.

Wing Hang Bank has reported the fraudulent website to the Hong Kong Monetary Authority and the police, who are currently working with relevant authorities to shut  down the fraudulent website.

If customers are concerned that they may have revealed their security details to fraudulent websites, please call the customer service hotline of Wing Hang Bank at (852) 3199 9188.
