RELEASED DATE 10 Oct 2019
Along with the rapid development of social network, the number of web fraud and high-tech crimes has tended to increase. Perpetrators fraudulently use banks’ reputation, taking advantage to deceive customers.
Recently, there have been several cases which have caused public anger and seriously affect BIDV's image. BIDV would like to inform customers and hope to raise awareness about recent scams.
Fraudsters impersonating a BIDV staff use pictures from BIDV’s seminars and nametag with BIDV logo and engage in dialogue with customers via Zalo and Facebook. Once gaining trust from a customer, they promise to lend customer a small loan (less than VND100 million) and require a "risk premium" of VND1-2 million. Immediately after sending the premium, customer is unable to contact the fraudster.
Stay alert. Always verify offers from strangers and notice suspicious signs. When in need of our Bank products and services, customers can directly access BIDV's official website at https://www.bidv.com.vn, call Customer Service Center 24/7 via 19009247, or visit nearest transaction office.

BIDV directly collect service fees at the bank and provide valid proof of payment to customers. List of service fees is publicly announced in accordance with regulations at BIDV transaction points and on BIDV official website (https://www.bidv.com.vn). It is recommended that customers do not pay any fee without checking BIDV's list of service fees and NEVER transfer the fee to any third party.
