Beware of "USAA Pending Direct Deposit on Hold" Phishing Email Messages

USAA customers are asked to delete and not follow the instructions in email messages that claim that there is a pending direct deposit on hold. The email messages (see a sample below) are phishing scams that are being sent by cybercriminals to trick 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 reading 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.
