New banking scam

Posted:

The FBI is warning there is a new scam out there to steal your money.

It's a phishing scheme that uses spam e-mails that appear to be from government agencies such as the Federal Reserve or the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.

When you open the e-mail, you're told there's a problem with your bank account and to fix it, you must click on a link.

The FBI says that link takes you to a phony website that downloads malware and grabs everything off your computer needed to steal your banking information.
