Internet/ E-Mail Fraud Alert
The term phishing comes from the fact that Internet scammers are using increasingly sophisticated lures as they "fish" for users' financial information and password data. The most common ploy is to copy the Web page code from a major site - such as AOL and use that code to set up a replica page that appears to be part of the company's site. A fake e-mail is sent out with a link to this page, which solicits the user's credit card data or password. When the form is submitted, it sends the data to the scammer while leaving the user on the company's site so they don't suspect a thing.
Phishing is just one of the many ways people are having their identity stolen. To help our members Chief Financial offers a program that will help monitor your personal information, credit report and much more to prevent your identity from being stolen.
