Centennial Bank has been made aware that a spoofed website is attempting to mimic Centennial Bank’s main page, my100bank.com, was appearing in search results as a sponsored link. The website replaced the word bank with “bunk”. The cybercriminals utilized a new technique where sponsored links are manipulated so that fake websites appear legitimate and are listed at the top of search results on popular search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing. Centennial Bank’s Security Team acted immediately to have the spoofed website removed.
A spoofed website is an imitation of a legitimate website, designed to deceive users and potentially compromise their data.
Here are some tips to keep in mind:
- When browsing the internet and especially when using search engines always verify the website’s URL before clicking the link or entering any personal information.
- Type Centennial Bank’s web address into your browser instead of utilizing a search engine to access our site.
If you encounter any suspicious activity please call our Customer Care Center at (888) 372-9788 immediately.
