Charles Schwab Alert: Sign-In Online Banking Access Locked

A phishing (identity theft) campaign targeting Charles Schwab brokerage clients is currently making a strong showing. The spoofed account notification typically arrives as:

Subject:      Charles Schwab Alert: Sign-In Online Banking Access Locked
From:     Charles Schwab <onlinebankingalert@client.schwab.com>

It’s a high quality forgery, but the emails typically originate from compromised mail servers throughout the world.

The actual email itself will look like this one:

While the hyper links included will direct users to very high-quality web site forgeries designed to trick users into providing their actual Schwab.com username and password.

There are countless fake landing pages in use, but this example linked to:

Needless to day, if you’ve fallen for this scam, an immediate phone call the real Charles Schwab service center is in order.
