Phishing by telephone – clever twist

by on Jan.29, 2008, under Uncategorized

Saw an interestingly different phishing scam mail today; one purporting to be alerting customers to phishing scams, and requesting they contact the bank on an 800 toll-free number (no doubt paid for with a stolen card) in order to unblock access to their account.

The message was:

Members and Non-Members may have received an e-mail that “appears” to be from Unity Bank.
This is an e-mail fraud attempt designed by hackers to obtain your personal information.
The e-mail has a link that sends you to a site similar to our Internet Branch site and requests you to supply your card information.
We urge you not to follow the links or enter any account information.

We are commited to safeguarding your personal information and it is important that your account stays secure.
The e-mail addresses used in the scam were not obtained from Unity Bank.
We will never ask members for personal account information in this manner.

For your security, your online banking profile has been locked .

Unlocking your profile will take approximately one minute to complete :
