Epsilon Email Attack Ongoing

No time right now for a full length post on this, but listen up. A large number of names and email addresses of banking have just been stolen by cyber-criminals. If you are not very careful, you can accidentally provide these bad people with enough information to make you a victim of bank fraud. Here is what the these cyber-criminals have done…

Step 1> Steal the names and email addresses of millions of banking customers.
Step 2>Email those customers, and get them to provide more information that can be used to steal money from their bank accounts.

Don’t be fooled! If you recieve an email telling you that you need to “reset” your account data, contact your bank immediately, using whatever method you usually use, and do not ever respond directly to any unsolicited requests to provide personal information.
