Fraudulent emails referencing CDC-sponsored State Vaccination Program

1 post in this topic

CDC has received reports of fraudulent emails (phishing) referencing a CDC sponsored State Vaccination Program.

 

The messages request that users must create a personal H1N1 (swine flu) Vaccination Profile on the cdc.gov website. The message then states that anyone that has reached the age of 18 has to have his/her personal Vaccination Profile on the cdc.gov site.

 

The CDC has NOT implemented a state vaccination program requiring registration on www.cdc.gov. Users that click on the email are at risk of having malicious code installed on their system.

 

Another reminder that we always need to be on alert for the many, many scams on the Internet. Thanks for Jeannie for finding this for us!
