The wrong e-mail can have you Phishing for trouble - Phishing in Alaska

By the time leaves start to fall and the first frost appears, fishing season has ended. Most Alaskans have long put away their fishing rods, waders, and dip nets. On a different type of net, however, many unsuspecting victims are being snared year-round. Internet scammers know no season and can strike at anytime. Customers at First National Bank Alaska, Alaska’s largest Alaskan-owned and operated bank, were recently the targets of an e-mail scam known as phishing. In the scam, fraudulent e-mails were sent to customers that asked them to divulge personal information as part of a customer survey. A cash reward was offered. - Alaska News
