Fake Chase account summary emails now widespread

Be careful of new spammy emails from (apparently) Chase.com. These emails state that your account has been locked out, and to “click here” to unlock your account. However, doing so can compromise your computer. Only click links that appear to be real, which means when you hover over the link, it should show the same address in the status bar at the bottom of the browser. If it really is from Chase.com, you should see https://www.chase.com/ as the first part of the address. If there is anything extra placed after the .com part, except for a forward slash (as noted in the link example highlighted red), distrust it. Don’t click on it. If anything, call Chase customer support about the email rather than clicking the link.

It’s also very obviously a spammy email, because of the grammar/spelling errors involved. And also because of the following (when I view the full header):

  • Return-Path: <armagedo@c12.iservidorweb.com>
  • Received-SPF: none (domain of c12.iservidorweb.com does not designate permitted sender hosts)
  • Received: from armagedo by c12.iservidorweb.com with local (Exim 4.77)
    (envelope-from <armagedo@c12.iservidorweb.com>)
  • Message-Id: <e1tf5am-00009j-dx@c12.iservidorweb.com> id 1TF5am-00009J-DX
  • X-AntiAbuse: Sender Address Domain – c12.iservidorweb.com
  • IP:
