Received a scam text message?

If you are uncertain whether a text message you received from Kredinor is genuine, visit kredinor.no and click on “See the status of your case”. If you have a case with Kredinor, it will come up when you enter the information from the link in the text message. If nothing comes up, the text message is fraudulent. Your case can also be found on My Page, by logging into kredinor.no.

There have recently been many reports of scam texts that claim to be sent from Kredinor or other companies. Don’t let yourself be fooled. If you happen to click on a link in the scam text or provide any information, such as your date of birth, national ID number, bank account or credit card number, contact your bank to block access to your cards, as there is a risk that someone may misuse your information. Kredinor takes these incidents very seriously and report them to the police, who will hopefully find out who is behind them.

 

Contact your bank immediately if you have shared any information that may be misused by unauthorised persons.

Exposes scam texts: See the status of your case

Anyone who receives scam texts can easily find out if they have a case with Kredinor by clicking on See the status of your case. Type in an alleged case number or reference number from the text message. Information about the status of a case number or reference number will then pop up if this exists. If no case can be found, the text is fraudulent.

At kredinor.no, you can click “See the status of your case” to check the number stated in the text message. If no case comes up, the text is fraudulent

The texts that claim to be from Kredinor are worded in a way that is typical for phishing messages. A low amount (e.g. NOK 19.12) and short payment deadline (the same day the text message was sent). These may be stressful for those who receive them, leading them to continue clicking for payment without taking time to check the message.

The message may also mention that you can avoid debt collection proceedings by making a payment, which is another factor that may pressure the recipient into paying quickly. The message shown here was sent on a Friday evening (approx. 10pm) – probably because it would be impossible to reach anyone at Kredinor during the weekend. Over time, some messages have changed their wording, but the goal is always the same: to get people to click on the link and leave their information. It is very important to delete the message.

The text message often links to a website where it appears that you can log in using BankID. Information concerning your telephone number, National ID number, as well as debit or credit card information is then requested. It would be very unfortunate if the requested information were to be sent to unauthorised parties, in this case scammers who have deliberately sent the text message to acquire this information.
