FDIC issues warning on fraudulent e-mailsMortgagePress.comphishing,FDIC,fraud protection The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) has received complaints from consumers who have received an e-mail that appears to have been sent by FDIC. The fraudulent e-mail indicates that FDIC has collaborated with credit card providers to offer a new service for those who wish to secure their credit cards against fraud and to participate in a secure online transaction network. The e-mail claims that by accessing the embedded link, the recipient can receive a free trial membership that provides discounts for some of the more popular online retail outlets. The e-mail was not sent by FDIC and may be a fraudulent attempt to obtain personal information from consumers or to implant a computer virus onto the recipient's computer. Financial institutions and consumers should not access the link or attached files provided in the body of the e-mail and should not, under any circumstances, provide any personal information to unknown sources.
