Beware of scams, subsequent to the massive data breach at JP Morgan Chase Bank
The massive customer data breach, at the websites or JP Morgan including Chase.com, JPMorganOnline, Chase Mobile or JPMorgan Mobile, is expected to cause spurt in ‘confidence trick scams’ and id thefts.
According to a press release by JP Morgan more than 76 Million consumer accounts have been compromised, apart from ~8Million small business accounts.
The bank has tried to quell rumors of a potential crisis by claiming that account numbers, passwords, user IDs, date of birth or Social Security Number have not been compromised.
According to it, only name, address, phone number and email address have been stolen. It’s a moot point whether this is, in fact, 100% true! The compromise seems to have occurred in June. It was detected in July and in August, JP Morgan reported that only 1 million accounts were compromised. Now, it appears a total of 84 million accounts were exposed! Obviously, you need to take the bank’s assertions, with a pinch of salt!
Consumers should be wary of phone calls, texts and emails asking to verify Chase Bank account numbers, credit card numbers , expiration date, date of birth and SSN. These are generated by scammers who have partial data of consumers and are looking to fill in the rest, by making scam calls.
Don’t respond to phone calls, texts or email ids from Chase. Instead, call the bank at it’s official phone number and discuss.
