IDIOT Award – USBank.com

usbank-login-email

I’m continually amazed that banks and other commercial institutions think that it’s OK to send out email which has links that they want their customer to click on. While their customer may get away with clicking on the banks link, the next time they get a phishing email and get sent to a bogus site that looks legit, they will end up giving away all of their legitimate passwords.

The #1 rule of security is – Don’t click on email links. You don’t know for sure where they are sending you and you can easily end up giving away your passwords.
