Fraud description:

This fraud involves an advertisement on Facebook offering you an apartment to rent. The fraudster will ask you questions to find out which bank you use and to approve a credit check with mobile bank ID. This approval provides access to your bank account as a fraudster probably has already prefilled your personal number in the online banking page.

How to prevent this kind of fraud from happening:

  1. Never approve a transaction with your Mobile Bank ID by request from a person who posted the apartment ad.
  2. You have the possibility of downloading your own credit check if you use the service of the Swedish company UC-koncernen. For more information click here.
  3. Always contact the company to verify personal data of an individual who claims to be the owner/employee of before approving any transaction.
