Reporting suspicious emails

Sometimes you get emails pretending to be from legitimate sources - but they’re actually a tactic used by fraudsters to get you to give away personal or private information. This is called phishing.

If you have any doubts or suspicions about an email you receive, don't respond or click on any links.

If you do receive a suspicious email you can report it to us by forwarding it to phishing@ulsterbank.com

Suspicious emails

Criminals will sometimes attempt to lure you into entering your details at a fake but genuine looking website. Fraudsters then use your details to access your accounts and steal your identity or money. Criminals can also use links or attached files within emails as a way to infect your computer or device with malicious software (malware) - these are known as phishing emails.

Here's how to spot a phishing scam:

When you receive an unsolicited email you should check it for signs that it may not be from the person/company it appears to be from.

  • Check the email address - Is it the same as the email address you usually receive emails from, or just similar.
  • Check the email subject line - anything along the lines of "There is a secure message waiting for you", "Security Alert", "System Upgrade" and so on should be treated as suspect.
  • Check the message title - if it reads 'Dear Customer' or 'Dear Valued Customer' or if isn't personalised at all, then you should be suspicious. Phishing emails will not usually include your name.
  • Be wary if the email asks you to click on a hyperlink or a button to download a file. Wording such as 'verify your account or password' or 'update your security details' should be viewed as suspicious – they are likely to take you to a copycat website where you may be prompted to enter personal details which can be used to commit fraud.
  • Be suspicious of any message that creates a sense of urgency, such as 'If you don't respond within 48 hours, your account will be suspended'. A legitimate company will not create a false sense of urgency.
  • Check the grammar and spelling for mistakes or inconsistencies.

Top Tip! You can hover your mouse pointer over hyperlinks (or buttons) to see the underlying website URL.


  • Ulster Bank will never ask you for your full PIN or password.
  • Never respond to any unexpected or suspicious emails.
  • Don't click on any links or attachments within unexpected or suspicious emails
  • Report suspicious emails
  • If you have received a fraudulent or suspicious email, and not responded to it, please forward the email to phishing@Ulster Bank.com
