  • Fake emails

    I received the following email this morning. It's from US Bank, I don't have an account through US bank so I knew immediately the email was fake. The fact that it asks for a social security number for both logins should be a red flag to anyone! The link ip address goes to : domain name pointer

    Heres the email from [email protected]:

    Dear U.S. Bank account holder,

    We recently reviewed your account, and suspect that your U.S. Bank Internet Banking account may have been accessed by an unauthorized third party. Protecting the security of your account and of the U.S. Bank network is our primary concern. Therefore, as a preventative measure, we have temporarily limited access to sensitive account features.

    To restore your account access, please take the following steps to ensure that your account has not been compromised:

    1. Login to your U.S. Bank Internet Banking account. In case you are not enrolled for Internet Banking, you will have to use your Social Security Number as both your Personal ID and Password.

    2. Review your recent account history for any unauthorized withdrawals or deposits, and check your account profile to make sure not changes have been made. If any unauthorized activity has taken place on your account, report this to U.S. Bank staff immediately.

    To get started, please click the link below:

    We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and appreciate your assistance in helping us maintain the integrity of the entire U.S. Bank system. Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.


    The U.S. Bank Team

    Please do not reply to this e-mail. Mail sent to this address cannot be answered. For assistance, log in to your U.S. Bank account and choose the "Help" link in the header of any page.
