Supposed SBB competition
The NCSC is currently receiving numerous reports of a supposed competition run by SBB to celebrate its 120th anniversary and with the possibility of winning CHF 2,000. After answering a few questions, you have to register and a subscription for CHF 14.50 per week is thereby taken out. Ignore this WhatsApp message and do not forward it to your contacts.

Spate of call centre phone calls with fake numbers
Call centres are currently making calls using fake numbers that are actually assigned to private individuals. The number owners are now receiving callbacks from other private individuals, who were notified of missed calls. There can be dozens of such calls. Unfortunately, little can be done about this. Based on experience, the waves subside again after a short time.

Week 37: Resurgence of phone calls about apparent parcel deliveries

20.09.2022 - The number of reports received by the NCSC declined last week. Fake threat emails claiming to be from the police still make up the majority of reports. Last week, the name of the NCSC itself was misappropriated as the sender of these emails. There was also a resurgence in phone calls purporting to be from parcel delivery services, which attempted to fool the victims into downloading software in the guise of a parcel delivery notification.

S-U-P-E-R.ch - Fake-Sextortion

19.09.2022 - «We have pornographic images of you and will publish them unless you pay EUR 1,200.» Do not comply with such requests under any circumstances, as this is a nasty scam called fake sextortion. The blackmailers send such messages on the off-chance of reaching recipients who have visited pornographic websites. In most cases, the recipients are also put under pressure to pay the ransom quickly.
