Phishing Email Alert

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.

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.
