Phishing Scam E-mails

Phishing e-mails are e-mails from scam artists who use official looking webpages designed to trick you into believing they are from a corporate website that you have an account with.  Typically, it is either stated or implied  that your account will be suspended or deactivated unless you click the link to the webpage that is linked from the e-mail.  Often, the scammers say that someone is trying to use your account or this is done for "security" purposes.  Once you are at the site, they will ask you to provide or verify personal information such as bank account information, credit card information, social security information and password information.  If you get such an e-mail, you should delete it and do not provide any of the requested information.  However, if you are not convinced that you have a fraudulent e-mail, please contact the company directly and explain the e-mail you received.  If you give out any personal information, contact your bank immediately and depending on what information you gave out, it may be wise to take measures to protect against identity theft (e.g. contact credit agencies, close accounts, cleanse computer).  Many e-mail solicitations that appear to be phishing e-mails are set forth throughout this website and below:
