Phishing scam targets military families
Wednesday - 11/3/2010, 7:06pm EDT
The cyber crooks are sending unsolicited e-mails purportedly from USAA -- one of the nation's largest financial services and insurance companies -- to trick people into divulging their personal information.
Once a person clicks on the offending link, they are taken to a fake login page that closely resembles USAA's legitimate website where they are promoted for their name, address, social security number and other vital personal data.
This is the second time military families have been targeted in two years.
Cyber experts advise people to ignore any suspicious, unsolicited emails and to never click on any attachments or links contained in the e-mails.
