Warning!!! Online bank scams thru email
i just wanted to warn you that there is an email scam going around where you recieve an official looking email from your bank, informing you that there has been suspicious online activity in your account, so in order to protect you, you should click on a link supplied in the email, and you have to enter your social security number and maybe some other personal info to reactivate your account.
don't do it!!!
it is a scam. if you click on the link provided, you will be taken to a fake site that looks just like your bank's website, but you are then supplying the crooks with lots of your personal info.
i just got one of these, so i closed my web browser, restarted it and logged directly into my account using my normal password and username. there was no odd activity. in fact, a co-worker recieved the same email today, but he only has a car loan thru that bank; not something he ever goes online to access, nor would he have any accounts to be fiddled with, except the loan.
just thought i'd give everyone a heads up...
