How many of you get those e-mails from financial institution saying there is something wrong with your account and they need you to click the link to Verify the information.  I’ve gotten one  that was 100511_1649_Whatyouneed1.jpgsuppose to be from Bank of America, and just recently from Chase that said the following:

Dear Chase OnlineSM Customer:

Please don’t reply directly to this automatically-generated e-mail message.

There is just one small problem…I don’t have an account with these institutions.  This is what is known as a phishing attack. The creators of these e-mail want to use fear to cause you to click on the link where one of two things can happen.

1) Mal-ware is loaded onto your computer that can steal info form your computer, or cause damage to your computer.

2) The creator wants to harvest information about you through the forms to steal your identity or access your account.

WHAT TO DO

1) DON’T Click the link…ever.

2) go to a fresh browser site and see if everything is OK with your account.  If you are not feeling OK, this is a good time to change your password.   Otherwise you are OK.

3) Delete the e-mail
