How can you be sure that the e-mail was sent by KBC Brussels?
1. Check the sender’s domain name
Check to see whether the sender's e-mail address ends in ‘kbcbrussels.be’.
The domain name is the 2 last parts after the @ in an e-mail address.
The ‘kbcbrussels.be’ domain name can also be preceded by a word followed by a dot, such as @xxxxxxxx.kbcbrussels.be
An other valid domain name is @mail-kbcbrussels.be
2. Verify links in e-mails
Treat e-mails asking you to open links with suspicion. Never open links without checking them first.
Hover your cursor over the link without clicking and a pop-up will appear showing you where the link would take you if you opened it.
If you're using a tablet or smartphone, hold your finger on the link to see this pop-up.
Links are secure if the two last parts of the section between the forward slashes are one of our official domain names like kbcbrussels.be and mail-kbcbrussels.be.
3. If in any doubt at all, forward the e-mail to Secure4u
