Fictitious Email Scam, FDIC Publishers Clearing House Alert, Warning  title=

Be Suspicious When Anyone Requests Money For Anything Unsolicited!

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) has posted that they have received numerous reports of fraudulent e-mails that have the appearance of being sent from the Publishers Clearing House that make reference to the FDIC.

The e-mails inform the recipient that he or she is the winner of a large cash prize and instructs them to obtain a “Check Insurance Certificate from FDIC.” The e-mails state the FDIC will be “requesting a fee of $1,000.00” to provide the “Check Insurance Certificate.” The e-mails state that the recipient is to write to the FDIC via e-mail for instructions on how to send the requested fee. A fraudulent phone number and e-mail address are provided.

The FDIC does not issue anything called a “Check Insurance Certificates.” These e-mails are fraudulent and were not sent by Publishers Clearing House or the FDIC. Recipients should consider the intent of these e-mails as an attempt to steal money or collect personal or confidential information from the recipient. Recipients should NOT, under any circumstances, send funds as requested or provide any personal financial information through this media.
