Description

Certains internautes ont reçu des courriels provenant de US Bank, les informant que leur compte bancaire en ligne serait bloqué et le resterait jusqu'à ce qu'ils confirment leurs coordonnées de contact.

Même si le lien contenu dans le courriel semble à première vue légitime, il réoriente l'utilisateur vers un site web basé en Corée dans le but de dérober les détails du compte bancaire de l'utilisateur.

Voici un exemple type de courriel d'escroc :

Dear U.S. Bank account holder,
