IC3 Issues Alert for Fake Government Websites

Original release date: April 07, 2015

The Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) has released an alert that warns consumers of fraudulent government-services websites that mimic legitimate ones.  Scam operators lure consumers to these fraudulent websites in order to steal their personal identifiable information (PII) and collect fees for services that are never delivered.

US-CERT encourages users to review the IC3 Alert for details and refer to the US-CERT Tip ST04-014 for information on social engineering and phishing attacks.
