In short, scammers register on the Caixa Tem app and use the victim’s CPF. However, when providing your other data, such as email and cell phone number, criminals provide false data.

And so, application users only realize the scam in Caixa Tem when trying to access it. That is, it is at this time that the citizen discovers that there is already an account with his CPF registered.

If you notice this scam in Caixa Tem, Caixa’s recommendation is to seek face-to-face service at an agency to talk about the problem. In addition, it is necessary to present the personal documents to start a process of recovering the account at Caixa Tem.

In addition, it is worth mentioning that despite the attempted scam on Caixa Tem, the bank claims that the payment of up to R$ 1 thousand of the extraordinary withdrawal is made through Digital Savings. In this way, the victim’s care should be not to offer more data to the scammers.

Therefore, never click on links that arrive by email, SMS or WhatsApp. And if you notice that you have been a victim of the Caixa Tem scam, it is necessary to file a police report for the Civil Police to investigate the case and thus prevent criminals from making other victims with the same scam.
