Receiving many emails wanting personal information

New Poster

Receiving many emails wanting personal information

At least daily I receive emails from "Banks" saying my account was suspended and I need to go in and give personal information in order to access "my" account.  I know not to enter personal information but wonder why so many keep showing up in my inbox.

Re: Receiving many emails wanting personal information

It happens to everyone.

 

I personally go to the banks' website and hunt down how to report those emails so that the bank can track them down and stop them.
