USAA Cardholder Form Scam

I received a scam email this morning purporting to be from USAA with Important Instructions  for me as a USAA Cardholder. I’m not a USAA cardholder, so these important in structs aren’t really important to me!

However, if you are a USAA cardholder, here is a copy of the email - IT IS BOGUS - DO NOT SEND THESE SCAMTWATS ANY OF YOUR USAA CARD DETAILS!

Subject: important instructions

From : USAAWebServices@customermails.usaa.com

To: USAAWebServices@customermails.usaa.com

Email Body:  

Dear USAA cardholder,

We would like to inform you that we have released a new version of USAA Cardholder Form. This form is required to be completed by all USAA cardholders. Please fill in the form below and send it to our automated email robot:
form_id8911072266@usaa-mailings.com

IMPORTANT!
Please use this subject line:
Cardholder Form ID USCHF638190452524

CARDHOLDER FORM

First Name:
Middle Name:
Last Name:
USAA Card Number:
USAA Card Expiration Date (MM/YYYY):

To ensure delivery to your inbox, please add USAAWebServices@customermails.usaa.com to your address book.

So, to repeat, if you are a USAA Cardholder and you receive the “Important instructions for USAA card holder” emails, simply delete it from your machine. It’s a scam to try and steal your personal details.

Update

USAA: online form released

The same USAA form email is going out with the subject line USAA:online form released and other than the Cardholder form ID, (which may be random anyway), which was Cardholder Form ID USCHF9306772136, in my case, the email is identical to the one above.

If you receive the email above, or a similar email, drop us a quick comment to let us know any variations that are doing the rounds. Thanks, Be well.

Hello,

I received the same think just a couple of days after I contacted the “US Border and Customs protection” for the “Electronic System for Travel Authorization” prodecure.

For me this spam email was really confusing and worrying…because I needed the papers to be in order to get in the USA. But as we know never give details via email!!
