I feel this is a scam, just looking for confirmation. The email wants me to update information within 72 hours or I will be limited as to what I can do with my account. It doesn't specify if this is my credit cards ( which I do have from Chase) or an account from the bank ( I have no accounts with Chase Bank). So I should ignore this right?

Yes! And forward it to Chase's security team so they can look in to it.

 

A quick way to help tell if it's a scam is to hover over the email address that it came from. Some scammers are pretty sophisticated and spoof somewhat realistic addresses, but a lot of them aren't that bright. If it's a string of nonsense, or from a Yahoo of Gmail account, it's a scam.

I would ignore it. I never click on links from emails like that. You could call the number on the back of your chase card to ensure all is well. But the email sounds like a scam.

You shouldn't even click on it to open the email.

Yes, I would ignore it, it sounds like a phishing scam.

 

I have a couple of Chase accounts (cc's) and I've gotten no such emails.

 

I would forward it to Chase's Fraud Dept.

@jordan2  Scam, I got the same from Chase. When you click on the sender's email to see the whole addy you should be able to tell it's bogus.  Also  go to the Chase site, log in and look in your In Box for messages. If Chase had sent it the message would be on your In Box on the Chase site.  I've also been getting bogus messages from PayPal.

There's no harm whatsoever in just opening the email, just don't click any links.

 

I don't want people to freak out that they opened the email to read it, but didn't click on any links, thinking they made themselves vulnerable by just reading the email.

 

It's the links in the email that take you to the 'dark side' of fraud, not opening the email.
