Beware of "Capital One Account Temporary Suspended" Phishing Scam

The "Capital One Account Temporary Suspended" email below is a scam. Therefore, Capital One customers who have received email or SMS text message verification alerts like the one below which claim that their accounts have been temporarily suspended should delete them, and the instructions in them should not be followed. This is because the messages, like the one below, are being sent by cybercriminals to frighten and trick potential victims into clicking on the links in them, which go to phishing websites that steal online account credentials.
