Beware of an email claiming to be USAA investigating a phishing scam. It asks you to "reconfirm" your account. This is the phishing scam. I wasn't sure how to report it, so I thought I'd post it here...

*******

Email:
---------- Original message ----------
From: USAA <info@t3.se>
Date: Aug 12, 2017 4:49 AM
Subject: Your USAA Transaction(s) Request Alert
To: Recipients <info@t3.se>

You can tell it's phishing because (1) the entail address out was set from and (2) when you hover over the links, the address is not USAA.

Thank you for sharing this, PPDQBH37! Unfortunately, there are a lot of phishing emails trying to imitate USAA. We would like to have our IT Security Team also review this further. Could you please forward it to abuse@usaa.com? We appreciate your membership and helping us combat fraud. Have a great day! -Meredith
