The fake website that the link in the phishing email message will take the potential victims to, was created to look exactly like the USAA website, to trick potential victims of this phishing scam into entering their USAA banking sign-in or login information on it, thinking that they are on the legitimate USAA website located at www.usaa.com. If potential victims enter their banking credentials on this bogus website, it will be sent to the scammers behind the fake website. With their banking credentials, the cybercriminals will be able to gain access to their USAA accounts.
Victims of the phishing scam are asked to change their USAA password and contact USAA immediately.
This USAA phishing scam is similar to "Upgrade Your USAA Account”.
