Chase Website Hacked? Fake Chase Emails Follow

Wednesday, September 15th, 2010

My friends and I have all been trying to access the Chase.com website all this afternoon and late evening and keep getting errors.  It says the site is having maintenance but I almost think that is up to make us think the site is secured.  The strange thing is either the email spammers are really quick on the scene or they are the ones who have hacked the site.  The Chase.com site has been down at least since 8pm or so and is just now back up here it is at 1am CST.

The email that I had received from Chase@emailinfo.chase.com stated:

Dear client of Chase Bank,

Our servers is under system maintenance. and we need to verify our clients billing information.
And we need to verify your billing information.

If you mouseover the Chase link it says the URL is headed to a highly suspicious site called interiorwoodworkltd.com/images/chase/online/user/cgi-bin/ which brings people to a logon form and this is where they begin hacking into your Chase account. Be careful to trust emails from your bank even if the timing seems like its really from them.
