Fake GCash emails or messages are created by fraudsters to trick you into clicking on a phishing link or website and get information such as your GCash number, OTPs, MPINs, or birthday.
Follow these tips to spot and avoid getting phished from phishing links, websites, emails, or SMS:
- Check the sender before clicking on links sent to you.
- Never give your personal information, such as your birthday, address, mobile number, username or password.
- GCash will never ask for your personal information unless you request for help through the GCash Center.
- Ensure that the sender’s name and details come from the official accounts of GCash.
- Never share your MPIN or OTP.
- GCash will only ask for your MPIN and OTP when logging in the official GCash App.
