Security officials are warning users of a clever new phishing scam
arriving in emails purporting to come from the US Federal Reserve.
The US Computer Emergency Response Team (US-CERT) said that the spammed
messages direct users to a web page which warns of a new phishing scam
The message contains a fake Federal Reserve letterhead and warns users
in typically broken English that a "large-scales phishing attack started
and has been still lasting".
In addition to the shoddy grammar, the messages are identifiable in
their attempt to lure victims to an outside URL.
