How did this happen?
You probably got an email that claimed to be from your financial institution, but it was not. You are often asked to update your file, check your balance, or even asked to login to check that you haven’t become a victim of fraud. These tricky guys take over websites and then put exact copies of popular banks and credit union websites up in their place. They record all the info you enter. Of course the info won’t work right then and there, but now they are very close to stealing your identity.
