    H1N1 Scam IMPORTANT

    Got this from my agency thru the State Law Enforcement

    CDC has received reports of fraudulent emails (phishing) referencing a CDC sponsored State Vaccination Program.
    The messages request that users must create a personal H1N1 (swine flu) Vaccination Profile on the cdc.gov website. The message then states that anyone that has reached the age of 18 has to have his/her personal Vaccination Profile on the cdc.gov site.
    The CDC has NOT implemented a state vaccination program requiring registration on www.cdc.gov.

    Users that click on the email are at risk of having malicious code installed on their system.

    CDC reminds users to take the following steps to reduce the risk of being a victim of a phishing attack:

    • <LI style="COLOR: black" class=MsoNormal>Do not follow unsolicited links and do not open or respond to unsolicited email messages. <LI style="COLOR: black" class=MsoNormal>Use caution when visiting un-trusted websites.
    • Use caution when entering personal information online.
    An example of the Phishing email follows:

    So many phishing emails these days, I never click on anything from an email. I just google the keywords in the email and find the relevant link that way--I figure it's much harder to fool Google's algorithms into making a phishing site one of the top hits in a search than it is to send out a phishing scam email.
