Exclamation CHASE CREDIT CARD HOLDERS PLEASE READ!!

Last night I received an e-mail that said it was from Chase, claiming that if I filled out an easy 5 question survey, they would credit my visa account for $50 as a thank you. Today I went to the website link and saw the survey and they asked for my Chase userid and password, my SS#, credit card #, cvn#, driving (sic) license #, and mother's maiden name. I looked in the address bar and the address was a bunch of numbers and the https didn't have the security s in it. I called Chase and they said that they do not send these e-mails. I am always leary of these kind of things and very security conscious. THIS LOOKED VERY REAL!!! I almost fell for it, thank goodness I didn't. I just wanted to give you ladies a heads up so you can maybe avoid being scammed. Have a great weekend!

Thanks for sharing...this is good information. The phishers are very good at making these things look "real".

I also got an e-mail from Chase saying there was suspicious spending on my account and that I needed to log into my account with all my info to check it out. The e-mail looked real and professional, but I DON'T HAVE AN ACCOUNT WITH CHASE. That kinda tipped me off. I don't think they would do business like that by e-mail, but would rather call.

I get at least two messages a day about "fraudulent" activity on my accounts at different banks...usually banks that I don't even have an account with.

Your credit card company and your bank will both tell you

THEY WILL NEVER CONTACT YOU VIA EMAIL...they will call you.

Same goes for PayPal...they will never email you about a problem with your account. They will call you.

I receive these on a daily basis especially from Paypal. I never have any money in an account with them I just pay for items thru them.
I also get the chase e-mails but I don't have an account either.
I usually just delete them cause I would go straight to the website to check the status or see if there was a problem.

My server always filters these as spam and automatically sends them to my bulk (ready to delete) folder. So I usually don't get caught unaware.

Thanks for the heads-up on this!!

I fell for one of those fraudulent Paypal emails just a couple of weeks ago stating "thank you for your recent purchase of ______;to dispute, please click here." And of course, I hadn't made any such purchase and clicked on the link, got gibberish. Then I called Paypal and found out it was in fact a fraudulent scam site, which - fortunately - Paypal was already aware of and had disabled the link for future gullibles like me (and that's why I got the gibberish). Now I know to forward any of those emails directly to Paypal's spoof dept.

Isn't it sad that we have to be so overly careful these days and still can fall victim to these scams? I'm so glad you were wise enough to call them first - and I will heed your warning!!

I have gotten the Paypal e-mails and also E-Bay. Neither will send out e-mails like this, so the best thing is just to delete the things and then go the web site yourself (not with a link) to see if there are any problems. You can also report these e-mails to both Paypal & E-Bay.

Most Credit Card and Banks that you do regular business with will not Ask for Personal Information Like you mentioned in a Email.

I get emails like this all the time. And for Credit Card companies that I do not use!

Just people out trying to steal your money.

Same thing with Paypal. or Ebay.

Key word is Never Give out any information!!!!

I had a Friend long time ago do the same thing that you did. Open the email and answered all the questions that they were asking.
She sold on Yahoo auction and made really good money through the auctions.
She got a call from her bank one day and ask why she had emptied her account without coming to the bank first.

She was shocked!!! What do you mean I have no money in the bank?? she asked.
Someone stole $6000. from her account.

They told her that she had no money. She also had her Credit card on Paypal too. And that person took and spent over $10,000 on her CC.

Her bank and Credit card was now put on hold until everything was fixed.
No money to pay Bills with and no way to purchase anything on her Credit card.


So YES!!! Please be real careful.

never, never, never give personal information on the net, or to anyone on the telephone. If they say they are from the bank (or wherever), get a name and number. But contact the bank from the number that you have on file. If there is a problem on the account, any service rep would be able to tell you. Then report it to the cops.

My way of handling these sort of emails is that if I get one from a Bank.. any bank, even if the name was the same as my bank... I DELETE IT!!
My bank has a way of logging into my online account and sending a message to them.. they answer it, but no via email, but rather a message I can read when I am logged into my account.
Most banks do not ever send out solicitation emails because of all the spam emails out there.
With all the information out there about these fraudulent emails, people are still falling for them, which is very sad.

Glad that you caught on and called your bank. Pam

Aubrie, I get the same exact email at least once a week from them. Weird, I too don't have an account with them.
