Ya know, this Internet thing is anything but a mystery to me, I work on it to make a living and use it daily for personal use. This includes doing all of my Personal Banking online. But imagine if I weren’t savy…would I fall for this email that has landed in my inbox twice a day for the last two weeks? My guess is it is definately spam and it is definately Personal Online Banking Fraud.


Dear Chase account holder,

We recently reviewed your account, and suspect that your Chase Internet Banking account may have been accessed by an unauthorized third party. Protecting the security of your account and of the Chase Bank network is our primary concern. Therefore, as a preventative measure, we have temporarily limited access to sensitive account features.

To restore your account access, please take the following steps to ensure that your account has not been compromised:

1. Login to your Chase Internet Banking account. In case you are not enrolled for Internet Banking, you will have to use your Social Security Number as both your Personal ID and Password.

2. Review your recent account history for any unauthorized withdrawals or deposits, and check your account profile to make sure not changes have been made. If any unauthorized activity has taken place on your account, report this to Chase staff immediately.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and appreciate your assistance in helping us maintain the integrity of the entire Chase system. Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

Sincerely,

The Chase Bank Team

  2. Wow, so, it says, your INTERNET banking account might have been compromised and then Step One says if you are not enrolled in internet banking you’ll need to give *this* information first, to find out if your internet banking account is f*cked! Someone is a smart one! I wonder how many lamers have fallen for this. Good call, Stefan :)
