Your Bank Account May Lose Federal Deposit Insurance Protection if You Don’t Verify Your Information–Fiction!
Summary of eRumor:
A warning said to be from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) saying that your bank account is being viewed suspiciously by Homeland Security. You are asked to go to a website to verify your account information or face losing deposit insurance on your account and possible further scrutiny by the authorities.
This is another “phishing” scam.
Phishing is the attempt by crooks to trick people into revealing their personal financial information.
The U.S. Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) says no such message has been issued by the FDIC or the office of Homeland Security.
