I just got this email:


"Dear Chase OnlineSM Customer:

The problem is...I don't have an account with them. It's called 'social engineering' and it's very effective. Amazing that folks still fall for it.

I delete stuff like that all the time. I never open it.

Actually, that's phishing, not SE, but yes - it's amazing the number of people that still fall for it.

Yes, phishing can be a subset of SE. Very effective. I define social engineering as any method used to trick someone in giving up their security info.

It keeps fooling folks.

Chase just sent me a new visa debit card out of the blue also. Said my account was compromised though nothing was missing.

They probably had a security breach of some sort.

I like using the forms to give them trash data. I imagine them getting just a bit frustrated at the info not working! :supergrin:

As noted, that was a fishing attempt, not a true hack; the sender does not know if you actually DO have a Chase account. I get such email all the time for banks at which I have never had accounts.

My Chase account is hacked 2-3 times a month, but I'll be alright once I get my money from Nigeria.
