Worst Phony Phishing Email Ever!

I’ve gotten some fake emails soliciting everything from the co-ownership of a gold mine to an offer of marriage from a Nigerian general’s daughter.  But this the the worst ever.  I have taken out the dangerous link, so you won’t have to worry about being phished or having your identity stolen.

It was titled Final Notification.  Notice the fractured English and especially the signature at the bottom

Attention Beneficiaries,

The Federal Government is working to ensure its programs perform well to improve our Financial performance. It has come to our attention that your Social Security Number (SSN), Taxpayer Identification Numbers (TIN) or Employer identification numbers (EINs) Information records are out of date. That requires you to verify the Information. Failure to verify your records will result in Retirement, Disability,Medicare,SSI,IRS, survivors, family or companies benefits and so much more account suspension. CLICK HERE (DISABLED) to verify with your Financial Institution.

Federal Benefit Checks going all electronic – By March 1, 2013, everyone getting federal benefits by paper check will need to switch to electronic payments – direct deposit to Bank

Best Regards

Franklin D. Roosevelt (President)
Social Security Administration Office of Public Inquiries
