Would you share this Article with others?

Online users who have received emails appearing to be from the Federal Reserve Bank Of New York (like the one below), asking them to call 1(929)226-3193 or another telephone number, or requesting personal or banking information, are asked to delete them and should not follow the instructions in them. This is because the emails are fakes being sent by online scammers who are attempting to trick their potential victims into sending them money, which they will claim is for fees the potential victims must pay in order to receive their so-called money.

The Federal Reserve Bank will never request personal or banking information via an email message.
