Fake websites, similar to the Omakanta health information service, have appeared on the network to try to phish bank IDs, the Central Criminal Police (KRP) says on Twitter.

According to KRP, scam sites may appear in search engine results above the real Omakanta site.

Police urge caution when logging in to the electronic service with bank IDs.

The KRP Cybercrime Center instructs people not to log in to e-services through links obtained or search results from search engines.

You should add the correct addresses of the services to your browser's favorites, and it is a good idea to remind those close to you of the phenomenon.

Kanta Services also warns of a scam on the move.

- For security reasons, sensitive information such as personal identification number should never be sent by e-mail.

Kanta Services or Kela never ask for them by e-mail or text message, the bulletin reminds.

If you have already accidentally ended up on a suspicious site or received a text message asking you to log in, prompt Kanta Services to do the following:

1. Do not reply to the message or enter your information in the required fields.

2. Do not click on the links in the message.

3. If you suspect that your credit card information or bank ID has fallen into the wrong hands, contact your bank's customer service.

Krp said earlier that a nationwide investigation team focusing on the fight against fraud has been set up in the police.

The decision relates to a tangle of crimes detected during the spring and summer, where cybercriminals fish for bank IDs.

The acts have targeted several Finnish banks and their customers.

In total, about 700 crime reports have been registered during this year.

The amount of criminal damage is almost seven million euros.

The main objectives of the new investigation team are to find out the suspected perpetrator of the crime related to the fraud of bank IDs and to prevent further damage.
