This morning's mail brought a missive allegedly from the FDIC asking me to use a link to check my account. Obviously I realized the FDIC does not send email about such matters.
I contacted the FDIC by phone and was assured that they were aware of the scam and were in the process of shutting it down.
The Federal government takes an extremely dim view of this sort of fraud. I predict the perpetrators will be brought to justice.
