FDICThe Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) is warning internet users of a fraudulent e-mail that has the appearance of being sent from the FDIC.

The e-mail appears to be sent from “alert@fdic.gov” or “hgrene@fdic.gov” and includes a subject line that states: “FDIC: Your business account.”

The e-mail then states, “This includes information on the acquiring bank (if applicable), how your accounts and loans are affected, and how vendors can file claims against the receivership.”

The FDIC says they do not issue unsolicited e-mails to consumers or business account holders.
