Attack Spotlight: Scammers Mimic Real Banking Emails
Be on the lookout for a current phishing attack that tries to trick you by mimicking an email from your bank or credit union. Scammers work hard to imitate the look and feel of a bank’s real email and incorporate information from past data breaches or attacks to provide authentic-looking details. This can include posing as someone authorized to make a request. They could also include details such as partial account numbers.
The fraudulent emails have either a link or an attachment that contains a link. Either link directs you to an authentic-looking (but fake) webpage. Once you log in, the scammers steal your login credentials and gain access to your personal or business banking account.
The linked resource helps you identify the attack and explains what to do if you see it.
