USAA phishing scam

Some of you may be associated with USAA. This could affect you. Heads up.

USAA is investigating a new phishing scam pictured below that attempts to collect members' sensitive information.
Members have received a recent e-mail claiming to be from USAA that urges them to complete a "USAA Online Client Form." The e-mail directs members to a counterfeit website that aims to trick them into providing account information.

I used to get phishing scams all the time for various credit cards, banks, and paypal.

It was sort of obvious that it was phishing since I didn't have accounts at most of the institutions.

Since then, I assume that if I didn't contact them specifically about my account, it's either phishing or email that can be discarded without consequence.
