  • BC does not send links or contact customers to confirm personal data;
  • No employee has the right to contact clients on behalf of the Central Bank or the SVR;
  • Never click on suspicious links sent via email, SMS, WhatsApp or any other tool;
  • Access to the values ​​is completely free;
  • The forgotten money advice site is https://valoresareceber.bcb.gov.br and there is no other choice.
