Please be aware of the latest e-mail phishing scam made to appear to be sent by "firstname.lastname@example.org." The phony e-mail states that a recent review of the e-mail recipient's transaction history has determined that their credit card was used in Hungary, but the transaction was refused. The e-mail then advises the recipient to change their PIN by clicking on an attached link.
Should you receive this e-mail, DO NOT RESPOND or click on any of the links in the e-mail. This e-mail is fraudulent, soliciting recipients for personal information including their credit card account number and PIN. The e-mail contains many grammatical errors, which is one of the ways to spot these fraudulent emails.
Neither Visa® nor its vendor partners are affiliated with this phishing scam.
