Big Brother knows and that's a...
Our Information Security Officer received what appeared like the normal 314a FinCEN email that comes every 2 weeks. He questioned why all of a sudden he was getting it. After further review...the email looks completely legitimate, but instead of the 314a link that is usually provided, a FAKE link was provided instead. I am not providing the link here to protect everyone. smile I am contacting FinCEN but wondering if anyone else has gotten hit with this?
My opinion is mine only- not my employer's!

We got them today! I sent it to our IT Department after I noticed the funny link as well. They sent out an alert to all employees to delete the message.
We're all here 'cause we've lost control.
