  1. I closed our recently opened account with Republic Bank as even before we left the bank I was receiving spam hacked emails directed to our credit cards. This happened on two occasions. I think their security systems are very weak.

  2. @Michael,

    You are so right, something is a miss with this bank’s security configuration because their customers seem to be the primary target for cyber criminals right now. Personally I have investigate over 20 phishing emails over the last two months and majority of the links in these malicious emails lead to a fake copy of the republic banks login portal. When you enter your credentials into these copycat websites it is sent to criminals who can now login to the real website and possible steal your money.

    Fortunately I have managed to report every fake banking website I have come across to their website registrar, Google and Microsoft’s safe-browsing service resulting in the websites being shut down. Lastly, I think it’s ridiculous that the bank’s cyber security team is not doing this task.
