Common attacks

Social Engineering

“Social Engineering” refers to the practice of manipulating people to circumvent security systems and conduct fraud. This technique involves obtaining information people would not normally reveal to strangers.

Social engineering can take a variety of forms (e.g. telephone, e-mail, written mail, fax or instant messaging).

Phishing

Phishing is a type of social engineering attack often used to steal user data, including login credentials and credit card numbers. It occurs when an attacker masquerades as a trusted entity.

Phishing messages can come from a growing number of sources, including: e-mails, phone calls, social media messages and text messages. Victims can often be tricked into clicking the malicious link, or opening the malicious attachment.

E-Mail and SMS Spoofing

“Spoofing ” is when an e-mail or SMS message appears to have originated from one source when it was actually sent from another.

For example:

A scammer contacts a company pretending to be a financial institution/vendor, claiming that their bank account number has changed, so that subsequent payments will then unknowingly be routed to a fraudulent account.

Identity Theft

Identity theft is a type of fraud where a thief uses your personal information, such as your national ID or bank account number, to open accounts or initiate transactions using your name. Criminals may approach you pretending that they are a representative of Lychee or the bank. For this reason, please verify the identity of an individual or entity prior to responding, either verbal or electronic, to requests, for personal or business-related information.

Tips to Safeguard Your Information

  • Only enter debit/credit card and personal information when it involves a transaction you initiate and only on websites you trust.
  • Always use a secure website or authentic mobile application when submitting debit/credit card numbers, financial or personal information online.
  • Update your phone number by notifying Lychee as soon as you change it to ensure you receive instant notifications for any conducted transactions on your account(s).
  • Regularly monitor your account activities to promptly detect fraudulent transactions.
  • Avoid accessing your Lychee app services in open, public areas like internet cafes.
  • Secure your mobile phone and immediately report to us if you lose it or suspect any unauthorized access.
