PIN heads

A recent article in the Hartford Courant indicated that two dozen bank customers lost money after falling victim to a phishing attack where scammers sent email and text messages asking them for pin numbers associated with their debit cards.  The article suggests that the timing of the scam coincides with an announcement from a financial processing company that it’s data had been compromised.  It seems as if we’re not making much headway on the education of consumers about not responding to such obvious scams.
