Schwab Phishing Scam May Be Targeting Some Advisor Clients

Tags: privacy; security

Schwab Advisor Servcies today alerted some RIAs about a new phishing scam that is being directed at some Schwab clients. 

 

 

This Website Is For Financial Professionals Only


Clients are receiving emails, that appear to be Schwab Alerts, asking them to click on to review their account. The email message reportedly says tells clients their accounts will be locked if they do not respond.

 

 

Phishing scams prey on naive Web users, tricking them into logging in to a "secure" website that is, in reality, a fake, so that the scammers can collect user names and passwords.
