"CIBC Online Banking Account Suspension" Phishing Scam

The email message below, which claims the recipient's CIBC (Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce) banking account has been suspended or disabled for security reasons, is a phishing scam. The fake email message is being sent by cyber criminals to trick CIBC customers into clicking on the link within it, which will take them to a fake CIBC website. And, any attempts to sign into the fake website by CIBC customers will result in their account usernames (card numbers) and passwords being sent to cybercriminals, who will use the stolen information to hijack and use their CIBC accounts fraudulently.

CIBC customers should never click on a link to sign into their accounts, especially links in email messages. They should instead, go directly to https://www.cibc.com/, and sign into their accounts. If there is something wrong or they need to do something with their accounts, they will be notified right after signing in. Or, they contact CIBC customer service to verify the authenticity of an email message before following the instructions in it.
