Orchard Bank Credit Card Approval Phishing Scam
April 11, 2012 -
The "Orchard Bank Credit Card Approval" scam is an e-mail that scammers are using to trick persons into giving out their Orchard banking information. The e-mail message contains two links; the first is a link to report the same message as spam, and the second, to redirect you to a phishing website.
These are things to look out for:
E-mail Subject: You are approved for a credit card from Orchard Bank
Links in the body of e-mail:
- To report this message as SPAM, CLICK HERE
- Fast Decision- in 30 sec you could be approved for a orchard bank Credit Card
The first link indicates that you can click on it to report the same e-mail as spam, will redirect you to http://goodtell.net/. It seems that this website collects e-mail addresses for possible future spamming from the same or other scammers.
The second link redirects to http://card-counter.net/, which is a fraud and phishing website. The same website was blocked by my Kerio Web Filter.
Please avoid clicking on any of the links in the e-mail message and delete immediately if this message ends up in your inbox.
