- INTERNET FRAUD AND PHISHING
Phishing, the practice of using fraudulent e-mails and copies of legitimate websites to extract financial data and other personal information from unsuspecting computer users, continues to expand in sophistication and customers of financial institutions and increasingly targets of these scams. Because phishing materials often look genuine and may appear to originate from real people, organizations, institutions, and websites, the following precautions are suggested:
- Be cautious about clicking any links, opening any attachments, or downloading any files from e-mails regardless of file type or who sent them.
- Never open a website using a link provided in a suspicious e-mail. Links and the e-mail sender address can be forged.
- Avoid including sensitive personal information in e-mail messages. A better practice is to call a company directly.
- Be wary of any request that asks them to perform an urgent action (e.g., “Security Check”, “Activation”, “Verification”, or any request to wire funds or make other payments).
COMPUTER SYSTEM PRECAUTIONS:
- Keep computer software (e.g., system patches, anti-virus, and anti-spyware) up to date with the latest security patches.
E-mail fraud is a common way that thieves attempt to steal information. Here are some examples of methods used:
- Illegitimate offer e-mails advertise the sale of items at a reduced or even unrealistic price in order to obtain your personal information.
- Requests for assistance scams usually offer the recipient large sums of money in exchange for financial assistance.
- Phony sender e-mails purport to come from executives of an organization (e.g. John Doe, CEO).
Spam messages are targeted, mass-distributed, unsolicited e-mails. These e-mails may contain offers to buy items, attempt to solicit business, or invitation to visit a website.
Unfortunately, while these offers may appear legitimate, many people have lost money responding to offers that are often fraudulent.
