Thai banks have warned of widespread fake banking apps and advised mobile users to check who the application developers are before downloading them. 

Information posted on SCB Thailand Facebook page on Thursday says imposter apps using names and logos of many banks can be found in the Google Play Store and they were not  developed by the actual banks.

The only developer of SCB apps is Siam Commercial Bank PCL.

Krung Thai Bank (KTB) posted  a message on its Line page warning clients who want to do financial transactions with the bank through mobile devices to use apps developed only by Krung Thai Bank PCL.

According to reports, SCIENTIFIKA MEDIA has released apps replicating the functions of many Thai and foreign banks, such as KTB, Bangkok Bank, SCB, Bank of Ayudhya and Thanachart Bank.
