Fraud Tip of the Day

So many of us have received an email that looks like its from PayPal, CitiBank, eBay, AOL or some other bank saying that we need to log in and verify our account info. Well, these aren't actually from the company they say they are. They are trying to steal your account info from you. The practice is known as phishing. Well the FBI really doesn't like fraud one bit, so they've set up a page describing many common fraud schemes and what you can do to protect yourself.

Yeah, it's actually really funny when they e-mail me at school to verify my account...a. I don't have a pay-pal account, and b. I'd never use my school e-mail for any purchases...better luck next time!

This tip has interesting timing. I just got an e-mail, of course at account none of the banks have, from Chase Bank, about my account, which I cancelled a year ago saying that someone else had gotten into my account. What account was that?

Oh, that reminds me, I recently received Two Hundred Thousand Dollars ($200,000) inherited from a distant aunt but I have need of depositing it in a bank account. Now, if one of you guys would give me your bank account number, credit card number, etc, I'd be willing to cut you in on 25% of it, or Fifty Thousand Dollars ($50,000). This is a completely legal and discrete transaction and I will be pleased to be contacted at your earliet convenience.
