It's a worthwhile warning that may apply to many of us in México.

This "scam" has been going on for at least a couple of years and is similar to others that may ask you to click on some link and then enter your account information. Western Union, Citibank and Wells Fargo all have been targeted with similar scams.

Actual e-mails from respectable companies never send e-mails requesting this information. One should never click on these links. Google does a fairly good job at intercepting these scams and puts them in your spam folder. You can also report the e-mail to Google. On the upper right hand corner of the e-mail to the right of the e-mails date you will find a drop down menu. Click on the drop down arrow and you will find a "report phishing" selection. Clicking on it will alert Google to the sender's e-mail address.

Thanks for the "heads up"!
