Phishing Email Alert

September 1, 2011

The FDIC has released a warning to be aware of phishing emails purportedly from the FDIC. The email is alerting the reader that their ACH or Wire transaction has been temporarily suspended for security reasons and they need to download and install the newest security version. If the link is clicked, it proceeds to infect the readers PC. Currently the emails come from no.replay and notify84zma both ending with @fdic.gov but these can and probably will be changed by the criminals. These emails are not real, the FDIC would not send this type of email out and the email should be deleted.
