So your a Chase member and Chase emails you with this email below? What do you do? Do you reply to it by clicking the link below? Do you want to know how to read it? It's a Phishing Scam. Never ever click anything in this email to access your Chase account. Just because you hover over the link that you click and it shows the correct url doesnt mean its ok to click, heres why. I just received this email. Here is how to read it:
When you click the link below, it opens a new page, at the top of the page you will see a url ---> https://chaseonline.chase.com/colapp...page_logonform
If you try to copy the url and paste it, you will receive some other kind of information. If you copy and paste the email message into Frontpage and examine the code, you see this:
Received: from my-tomato ([220.127.116.11]) by bay0-mc5-f5.bay0.hotmail.com with Microsoft SMTPSVC(6.0.3790.211); Fri, 3 Feb 2006 12:53:36 -0800
Received: (qmail 4424 by uid 530); Sat, 4 Feb 2006 04:53:36 +0800
So someone from my-tomato with a return email address of firstname.lastname@example.org
is trying to phish you. Pretty neat huh? Now go here http://www.geobytes.com/IpLocator.htm?GetLocation
and type in the ip address 18.104.22.168. You will see this email originated from Beijing. Since when is Chase from Beijing? Sinse when do they outsource to other countries?
Chase will never ask you for this info below:

You will receive a "The page cannot be displayed" if you try to copy and paste it in your browser. If you click the Apply button and access this page once, close it and try to access it again, you will not be able to. Give it a try if you want to test it out. Just wanted to give you all a little heads up. People do this everyday.
