Beware fake online ads phishing for your money.

Scammers are targeting regular Online Banking users with bogus ads on search engines such as Google, Yahoo and Bing that include a direct link to a phoney Online Banking login page.

We remind all Defence Bank members that we would never include a link to Online Banking in a Google or other search engine ad.

You should not use any search engine ad to access Online Banking or use any links contained in those ads. It will likely lead to a fake website which asks for your login details, which scammers then use to try and access your funds via Online Banking.

To help keep you safe online, we recommend that you:

  • Immediately change your Online Banking password and continue to do this regularly.
  • Always check the URL that you are using to determine its authenticity.
  • Always type into your web browser. This will guarantee that you arrive at our website and can safely access Defence Bank Online Banking.

As an alternative option, please download and use our banking app, which is available in both the App Store and Google Play.

Play it safe.
