Bogus Chase Manhattan survey aims to phish money
The emails claim that Chase Manhattan's online division is conducting a survey of its users, and will credit $20 to the accounts of those who take part. However, in reality the emails do not come from the bank but point to a bogus website which attempts to steal usernames, passwords and other confidential information from unwary surfers.
"Email scammers are looking for new ways to fleece the unwary, and this time have come up with a new twist: asking people to help in a survey for a cash reward," said Graham Cluley, senior technology consultant for Sophos. "Internet users who bank online need to be wary of these kinds of tricks, and be extremely careful about what websites they hand their personal information over to before they end up penniless."
