Fraudulent FDIC Email
A phishing email is currently circulating that appears to be from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). The email includes a link that will forward users to a fraudulent website that will request personal information and attempt to infect the user’s machine with viruses.
The email appears to be from 'firstname.lastname@example.org' and the subject of the email states “you need to check your Bank Deposit Insurance Coverage”. The email also includes a link and asks users to visit the link and verify personal information. When the link is clicked, the user is forwarded to a page similar to an FDIC page, and the page requests personal information. To make matters worse, when the link is clicked, the page also automatically downloads at least two malicious executables.
If you receive an email from the address above delete it and do not open it. Please contact the administrative office if you have any questions or concerns at 5.12.302.5555 ext. 7000.
