Spammers are nothing if not persistent, and even more so when it comes to the most sinister ones that are trying to steal your identity and your entire bank account.
They’re also smart enough to Phish in the biggest pools of potential victims, so the endless stream of cons targeting JP Morgan Chase customers makes perfect sense.
The latest comes with a subject:
Please Restore Your Account Access
And proceeds with:
Dear Chase Online customer:
During our regualry scheduled accounts maintenance and verification procedures, we have detected a slight error regarding your Chase Bank Online Account.
Here’s a screen shot of the entire email:
It then closes with call to urgency:
If you account information is not updated within 48 hours then your ability to access your account will be restricted.
Like most Phishing fraud emails, a close reading will disclose a number of minor spelling errors. Why spammers can steal, hack, craft social engineering schemes and run mass armies of bot-nets but can’t use spell-check we’ve yet to figure out.
Amusingly this one also can’t count, listing bullet point “4” before bullet “3” for whatever reason.
Errors aside, one smart move on this spammers part is the inclusion of all the “fine” print at the end of the email, which is something the typical con email lacks.
It’s not that this typical disclosure and legal fine print nonsense at the end of the message is typically read by anyone. But, just having it there makes the email appear instantly more credible because it looks so much like the gobbledegook included in actual Chase emails.
