E-mail #2 - Claiming to Be From the FDIC

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) has received numerous reports of another fraudulent e-mail that has the appearance of being sent from the FDIC.

The e-mails appear to be sent from “alexis.meyers@fdic.gov" and have subject line that reads: "Changes in FDIC security requirements."

The e-mails are addressed to "Dear Client," and state, "Your account ACH and Wire transactions have been temporarily suspended for your Security, due to the expiration of your security version.  To download and install the newest Updates, follow this link security.”  A hyperlink is then provided.  They conclude with, “As soon as it is set up, your transaction abilities will be fully restored.  Best regards, Online security department, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation”

The following address is provided at the bottom of the message:

            “FDIC Public Information Center
            3501 North Fairfax Drive, Room E-1002.Section 515. Arlington, VA 22226
            Fax Number: (703) 562-2296  Email Address: publicinfo@fdic.gov”
