Nashville, TN – “We suspect an unauthorized transaction on your account. To ensure that your account is not compromised, please click the link below and confirm your identity.”
Have you received e-mail with a similar message? It’s a scam called “phishing” – and it involves Internet fraudsters who send spam or pop-up messages to lure personal information (credit card numbers, bank account information, Social Security numbers, passwords or other sensitive data) from unsuspecting victims.
“It’s impossible to keep up with the variations of these types of scams because they are forever changing,” said Mary Clement, director of the Tennessee Division of Consumer Affairs. “The best way to avoid being victimized is to practice safe computing and report fraudulent e-mails.”
According to the Federal Trade Commission, phishers send an e-mail or pop-up message that claims to be from a business or organization that you might deal with – for example, an Internet service provider (ISP), bank, online payment service or even a government agency. The message might ask you to “update,” “validate” or “confirm” your account information. «Read the rest of this article»
