While scanning my inbox, I noticed an email from Chase. It mentioned something about a potential fraud alert on one of our accounts.
It didn’t take long for me to figure out this was a fake.
The first thing is there is not even a Chase logo anywhere.
I then noticed the scammers sent this email to an address I don’t have on file with Chase.
The next clue? The email was addressed to Undisclosed-Recipients:
If Chase is sending you an email about fraud, it’s addressed to you.
The final hint was that the email was sent from a charter.net email address. I’m sure this is the email from some poor person who clicked on one of these links and not who actually sent the message, so I’m not going to share that email.
I’ve dealt with fake “capital ONE” emails before but not usually from fake “chase.”
I did a quick search to find out how to report a fake email to Chase.
Whatever you do, if you receive an email like this, don’t click on anything. If you want to be safe, just delete it immediately. If you’re sure you can do so safely, forward it to the bank/business/whatever’s fraud dept. They’re easy to find if you just Google the company name and spoof email.
