AIB will never ...

 We will never text you with a link asking you to login to your account on mobile or online banking.

 We will never ask you to transfer money to any safe or third party accounts.

 We will never ask you for a One Time Passcode (OTP), card reader codes or Digipsass codes when we contact you.

 We will never ask you to download software or request remote access to your accounts.

 We will never asked you to not login to your account for a few days “until we fix a problem”.

Stay safe

Take the SAFE test before making any financial decisions or providing any personal information to anyone:

     Think and ask yourself - what? who? why? Do I feel rushed to act?

     Make sure the person contacting you is legitimate.

     Double check if the information you're told is real.

     Contact the Bank to check.
