Information on the Copycat Website
On October 9, 2019 we have become aware that a copycat of the National Capital Bank (NCB) website had been created to look like our authentic site. The copycat site also includes a link to the Login for online banking as well as a fraudulent enrollment form for new users. These links are ‘unsecure’ and should not be accessed.
When searching Google, this site appears to be the legitimate National Capital Bank website, however the URL address is not correct and reads nationallcapitalb.com. It has copied our logos, imagery, verbiage -though outdated, and formatting. It is a previous version of our site from sometime in 2018.
No systems utilized, owned or operated by National Capital Bank or its vendors were compromised and there is no threat to any customer information. This alert was informational as the copycat site could have compromised passwords if it is accessed.
What we’ve done
We immediately notified Google to request the website be removed from their listings, submitted a fraud notification to the host of the copycat site and alerted the Internet Crimes Center of the incident.
Safeguarding information is essential to delivering on our commitment to security and privacy and is our top priority.
What we are doing to help
We recommend reviewing the following information about staying safe online.
- Lock down your login ensuring passphrases are lengthy, unique and safely stored and adopting strong authentication for added protection and are updated often.
- Update your system and software by having the latest updates for security software, web browsers and operating systems to help keep cybercriminals at bay.
- Look for the lock symbol and verify the correct website address or URL. The lock symbol means the website is using security – and that’s a good thing! It’s the secure, encrypted connection between your web browser and the server so that other people such as hackers cannot obtain information. NCB’s website address is www.nationalcapitalbank.com and when accessing your online banking the URL will display with the NCB icon and https://
- Back up your personal data with electronic copies of your most important files – things like medical records, financial information and family photos and set a schedule to do so regularly throughout the year.
