April 14, 2008 - "A new phishing attack is leaving users fancying a 16% discount on purchases through credit card with more problems than savings. Sent as a promotion message from MasterCardís SecureCode service, the scam email offers customers 16% discount on purchases made through their credit card, TheRegister reports*. It also offers, quite ironically, more security for their online credit card transactions. Users enticed enough to sign up for the spoofed service are directed to a phishing site upon clicking the link contained in the email message. The site which is crafted to appear identical to the legitimate MasterCard Web site then prompts the user to enter their credit card information... SecureCode is a legitimate service from MasterCard, which aims for users to have a more secure way of doing transactions online. More information on this service can be found on the MasterCard Web site**."
