Beware of "Your CICB Account has been Deactivated" CIBC Bank Phishing Scam

The email message below with the subject: "Your CICB Account has been deactivated," which claims the recipients’ CIBC (Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce) accounts have been deactivated and their e-banking feature has been suspended due to suspicious activities, is a phishing scam. The fake email message is being sent by cybercriminals to trick CIBC customers into clicking on the link within it, which will take them to a fake CIBC website. And, any attempts to sign into the fake website by CIBC customers, will result in their account usernames (card numbers) and passwords being sent to cybercriminals, who will use the stolen information to hijack and use their CIBC accounts fraudulently.

CIBC Support

CIBC customers should never click on a link to sign into their accounts, especially links in email messages. They should instead, go directly to https://www.cibc.com/, and sign into their accounts. If there is something wrong with their accounts, they will be notified right after signing in. Or, contact CIBC customer service to verify the authenticity of an email message before following the instructions in it.
