Beware of "USAA Account Ownership Validation Reminder" Phishing Email Messages

USAA customers are asked to delete and not follow the instructions in email messages that claim that they need validate their accounts' ownership to help ensure their safety and security. The email messages (see a sample below) are phishing scams that are being sent by cybercriminals to frighten their potential victims into clicking on a link within the same email messages, which go to phishing websites that steal USAA account credentials (usernames and passwords).

Please continue below.

USAA cutomers who have already been tricked by the phishing email messages are asked to change their passwords and contact USAA immediately, before their money is stolen, online accounts hijacked and used fraudulently by cybercriminals.
