Beschreibung

Einige Internet-Anwender haben E-Mails erhalten, die angeblich von US Bank stammen, in denen sie informiert werden, dass ihr Online-Banking-Konto gesperrt wurde und solange gesperrt bleibt, bis die Anwender ihre Kontaktdaten bestätigt haben.

Der in den E-Mails enthaltene Link scheint auf den ersten Blick legitim, jedoch werden die Anwender auf eine aus Korea stammende Website umgeleitet, um die Kontodaten der Anwender zu stehlen.

Ein typisches Beispiel für die Scam-E-Mail lautet folgendermaßen:

Dear U.S. Bank account holder,
