Reported WAMU (Washington Mutual) scams have been the rise here at MillerSmiles but we've never come across one like this.
The new scam attempts to lure victims into playing a fake competition in which victims are assured the top prize is a "$5000 GOLD RING". Of course, the only the prize people will receive from this scam is a reduction in their bank account balances.
The email scam claims to be from WAMU and asks readers to enter their account data by clicking on a link in the email. Victims are then taken to a spoof login page where details are captured by the phishers.
MillerSmiles traced the spoof login page to a server based in the Korean peninsula.
The email scam text:
Happy Valentines Day From Washington Mutual Bank!
