DON'T BE PHISH FOOD: Chase online access temporarily disabled

Did you ever get one of those emails from your bank warning you that your account had been suspended?  Thankfully, they provide a convenient link for you to click and enter your login information to set everything right again.  If it seems too threatening yet easy to fix, then it probably is!

Keep your data secure and don't click on the link!

I received one of these emails today, and I shared it with my reliable IT guy, Gary Moonan of Have Tex (www.havetex.com).  Gary broke it down for me.  See his response below…
