Many banks and financial institutions especially in the English speaking countries have been targets of so-called phishing attacks.
Phishing is a form of Internet scam where customers are led to give their personal authentication data to hackers. Bank customers have received e-mails or phone calls where they have been asked to give their netbank passwords, credit card numbers and PINs.
Some financial institutions in Finland, Norway and Sweden were attacked by phishers. Many citizens and our customers in our market area have received scam e-mails in the name of financial institutions where confidential information is asked for criminal purposes.
How can I be sure that I’m dealing with Nordea and not an impostor?
Nordea will never send you an e-mail or call you asking for your passwords, credit card numbers, or other sensitive information.
If you are required to enter personal information to perform a transaction, it is always done in our systems such as Nordea private ebanking after an ordinary log in. In this way we know who you are, and you can be sure that it is really Nordea you are communicating with.
Verify the certificate securing protected nordea websites – click on the padlock to view our Verisign certificate issued to secureprivateebanking.nordea.lu
The physical “ActiveIdentity” card provides you with one of the most secure ways to identify yourself online – keep the PIN code and device securely stored.
How can I protect myself?
We want your online experience to be enjoyable and trouble-free. That is why Nordea uses encryption and other security procedures. We also want to make you aware of some simple security tips you can follow while shopping and banking online at home
Act quickly if you have surrendered your identification codes into the wrong hands. Contact Nordea immediately.

Monitor your transactions. Review your order confirmations, credit card and bank statements as soon as you receive them to make sure you are being charged only for the transactions you made. Immediately report any irregularities in your Nordea accounts by calling your Account Manager.
