Dear Nedbank Banking Member,
Due to the high number of fraud attempts and phishing scams, it has been decided to implement EV
SSL Certification on this Internet Banking website.
The use of EV SSL certification works with high security Web browsers to clearly identify whether
the site belongs to the company or is another site imitating that company's site.
It has been introduced to protect our clients against phishing and other online fraudulent activities.
Since most Internet related crimes rely on false identity, Nedbank went through a rigorous validation
process that meets the Extended Validation guidelines.
Please Update your account to the new EV SSL certification by Clicking here.
Please enter your OTP phone number, email and email password.
(Failure to verify account details correctly will lead to account suspension)
