We regularly receive reports of malicious online behaviours targeting our users. These include instances of phishing sites and malware that claim to offer eFootball™ Points in a bid to coerce users to disclose personal information such as their User ID, KONAMI ID, password, phone number and email address. This information can then be used to hijack users' KONAMI ID or access further personal details.

We have absolutely no affiliation with any of these sites and services, and we advise users to exercise extreme caution not to provide them with any personal information.
Two-step verification is also an effective way of preventing your KONAMI ID and game accounts from being stolen. If you have not already activated two-step verification, please consider doing so.
