Following last December's Bank of China fake website episodes, the English-language website of Bank of China has once again been copied and placed on a non-bank server.
The false website is registered in North America and is called www.banochi.net. It resembles the old website version of Bank of China with a "Client Log In" section asking users to input their bank account number and password so the phishing thieves can steal the data.
However, there are some obvious flaws in the fake website. For example, the news on the website is old and its Chinese version does not work.
Bank of China has told local media it is working to eliminate possible loss to its clients. The bank says Hong Kong police have begun to investigate case.
Bank of China reminds customers that their only legal website is www.bank-of-china.com.
