excellent phishing attempt

Dear Chase Manhattan Customer,

credit $20 to your account - Just for your time!
and Helping us better understand how our customers feel benefits
everyone.
With the information collected we can decide to direct a number of
changes to improve and expand our online service. The information you
provide us is all non-sensitive and anonymous -
No part of it is handed down to any third party groups.
It will be stored in our secure database for maximum of 3 days while

We kindly ask you to spare two minutes of your time in taking part
with this unique offer! To Continue click on the link below.

https://chaseonline.chase.com/chaseo...sp?LOBRBGLogon

-----------------------------------------

Take a look at that link to see how real it appears. DO NOT ENTER ANY INFORMATION! Unless it's bogus.

Clues that it isn't what it seems: The return address is admin@gmail.com. The actual sending host is 80.96.112.115, which isn't a chase computer and appears to be located in Romania. Finally, I don't have a chase account (and banks never send emails asking for account information anyway.)

I'm not sure the intent. It's either some kind of Denial of Service attempt...or they hacked the chase servers. Scary.

Re: excellent phishing attempt

They're getting a lot better.

I get a bunch of "Fraud alerts" and "Your credit card has been suspended" warnings from the Bank of Hawaii. Good thing I don't have an account there!

Re: excellent phishing attempt

The gremlins are getting braver. They had a go at the Federal Thrift Saving Plan. Probably a bad choice, I assume someone will be tracking down those phisers.

Re: excellent phishing attempt

Hmmm...maybe something got lost in the cut and paste of the url, because that page link above is verisign verified to belong to JP Morgan Chase...

Exactly. It is indeed their server. The site was either hacked or...Chase is sending emails from Romania with a from: address of admin@gmail.com.

Re: excellent phishing attempt

How. Strange. Maybe they tried a phish but forgot to use the right link to redirect to their own server...

Good point. That's more likely then a hack of the Chase servers.
