GTBank is the leading Bank in Nigeria that offers satisfactory Internet & online services, because of this, fraudsters tend to send users spam emails requesting for confidential information, pretending to be GTBank. If you also receive such emails (even if you don't), these 10 tips will surely help secure your account from fraudsters and scammers.

  1. Never login to GTBank internet banking through a link from your email, even if the email appears to have been sent from GTBank. Type the web address in yourself.
  2. The beginning of your internet banking page address will change from "http" to "https" when a secure connection is made.
  3. Be wary of any unexpected pop-ups that appear during your online banking session as GTBank software doesnt allow external pop-ups.
