Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation email is a forgery which aims to steal
recipients identities ...
If you have received this email, please remember that it is very
common for these email scams to be redistributed at a later date with only slightly
different content or the same but with the fake page(s) hosted by a different
provider. Also, once you have received one of these hoaxes, it is also common
place to receive at least another one and usually a day or two after the first,
although not necessarily from the same apparent sender.
The Spoof Email ...
In cooperation with the Department Of Homeland Security, Federal, State and Local
Governments your account has been denied insurance from the Federal Deposit Insurance
Corporation due to suspected violations of the Patriot Act. While we have only
a limited amount of evidence gathered on your account at this time it is enough
to suspect that currency violations may have occurred in your account and due
to this activity we have withdrawn Federal Deposit Insurance on your account
until we verify that your account has not been used in a violation of the Patriot
As a result Department Of Homeland Security Director Tom Ridge has advised the
Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation to suspend all deposit insurance on your
account until such time as we can verify your identity and your account information.
Please verify through our IDVerify below. This information will be checked against
a federal government database for identity verification. This only takes up to
a minute and when we have verified your identity you will be notified of said
verification and all suspensions of insurance on your account will be lifted.
Failure to use IDVerify below will cause all insurance for your account to be
terminated and all records of your account history will be sent to the Federal
Bureau of Investigation in Washington D.C. for analysis and verification. Failure
to provide proper identity may also result in a visit from Local, State or Federal
Government or Homeland Security Officials.
Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter.
Donald E. Powell Chairman Emeritus FDIC
John D. Hawke, Jr. Comptroller of the Currency
