  1. A new phishing email is out from a scammer as "Capital One " stating - an error was noticed with your card and to verify by downloading an .html file, opening the file and following it's instructions.

  3. I got 5 emails in the past month stating suspicious activity on my Capital One card. The email wants me to download an attachment. I forwarded the emails to abuse@ capitalone.com because I Don't have a Capital One card. Caution!!!
