Fake chase emails?

Postby nismoZtuner » Tue Oct 14, 2014 9:10 pm

I keep getting emails saying this:

any emails that you find suspicious
I would check the senders' email addy

most fake ones from chase says it's from gmail or yahoo or hotmail
I haven't seen any other then when I clear my junk mail :D

interestingly enough from gmail (but I also see legit companies in there like iTunes everytime it sends me a bill for stuff I buy off of iTunes)

Gongos is a legit company. But, I personally don't waste time on surveys or submitting my information to random companies.

Yeah I know what you mean. . Google is really good filtering spam but these emails from gongos always make it to my inbox- just curious if any body else is getting them. .

I always just find out from the website directly who I should forward any questionable emails to. I know that Paypal has the spoof@paypal.com and I always forward them emails that show up in my spam folder.

I did see a Chase one in my spam folder a couple days ago, but since I don't have a Chase card (yet, sometime in 2015), I just deleted it. I think it read something like yours, but wasn't paying much attention.

There's also a government site that you can send Phising emails to, but I can't remember the site now.

(I'm at work right now, otherwise I'd look them up for you.)
My Wallet:
Discover IT - $4000;
AMEX BCE $12000;
Citi Double Cash - $6600;
CHASE AARP Visa - $5000;
Banana Republic $1200;
NFM - $20,000;
Sears (Citi) MC - $6000;
