FBI director was nearly the victim of a phishing scam

Posted on Friday, October 09 2009 @ 03:03:16 CEST by


PC World reports FBI Director Robert Mueller no longer uses online banking after nearly falling for a phishing scam. Mueller said he had received an e-mail that looked pretty legit and that he was just a few clicks away from handling over sensitive information. Oddly enough Mueller states he considers online banking "very safe" but that "just in my household, we don't use it".
The head of the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation has stopped banking online after nearly falling for a phishing attempt.

FBI Director Robert Mueller said he recently came "just a few clicks away from falling into a classic Internet phishing scam" after receiving an e-mail that appeared to be from his bank.

"It looked pretty legitimate," Mueller said Wednesday in a speech at San Francisco's Commonwealth Club. "They had mimicked the e-mails that the bank would ordinarily send out to its customers; they'd mimicked them very well."
