QUANTICO, Va., Oct 18, 2011 -- Special agents from the U. Army Criminal Investigation Command are once again warning the American public, as well as citizens from other nations, to be extra vigilant and not to fall prey to Internet scams or impersonation fraud -- especially scams that promise true love, but only end up breaking hearts and bank accounts.
These phishing emails and web pages resemble legitimate credit authorities like Citibank, e Bay, or Pay Pal.
But instead of leading you to the real login https: site, the link will secretly redirect you to a fake website. This information is intercepted by the scammers, who later access your account and fleece you for several hundred dollars.
This phishing con, like all cons, depends on people believing the legitimacy of their emails and web pages.
They will even offer you a story of how your account has been attacked by hackers to lure you into entering your confidential information.
The email message will require you to click on a link.
