Phishing attacks impersonate US Attorney General


Arlington County VA today sent out a cyber alert from the Internet Crime Intelligence Center (or “Intelligence Note”), that spammers were impersonating US Attorney General Eric Holder in attempts to garner personal information with phishing attacks. The link for the alert is here.

Government agencies do not send out unsolicited emails. The FBI has a tip line on its website and does have procedures for taking and returning phone calls for tips that appear to be important or credible. Visitors might enjoy reading about the FBI Citizens’ Academies, web URL link here.
