Doc, is this a scam or phishing email?

Post by notspock » September 12th, 2006, 7:04 am

Email recieved without a correct email address from Washington Mutual. I do not have an account with Washington Mutual, or at least there is not one that I opened.

What do you think?

Another email. This one did have the correct email address. This time a credit union that I have never heard of. Do you think that perhaps someone has opened accounts with banks and credit unions using my name?

I get tons of those. I ignore them unless they are somewhere I have accounts. i have called WAMU before to be sure. You can forward them to [email protected] bank name.com that usually is the right email for any place. Other than that, I don't worry about them. I've been getting them for about 2 years now and don't actually have accounts opened there.

It's all spoofs!

They target lists of acquired email addys, just fishing for a sucker to take the bait!
