It's a phishing scam. Variations of it have been around for years.

You would think by now they should know not to click on any links or open attachments to email...but unfortunately that is not the case.

Being a Chase customer since 2010 if you want to be able to continue doing on-line banking with them. You will periodicaly have to comply with some of their requests.  For some reason here in texas you have to prove who you say you are over and above your normal log in credintals

 The bad part is some of the emails in the past were scams to get your log in.  They were so well crafted you could not tell the difference between a legitamte email from a scam.

 

Now even if you empty your browser cache delete cookies or in some way change your computer settings [apply updates] You will get a online page asking you to re-verify. This is also followed up by a e-mail.  You either comply or the site will not let you in.

I have been a Chase customer for over 20 years. I never do any business with them via email.

It's their YourComputer/YourAccount -- TheirComputers/YourAccount verification/ReVerification process.

If there is enough change in one's home computer, especially if all the cookies were deleted, then a ReVerification is done either by:

-- email, or

-- smart phone text

However, the end-user initiates the process by clicking the appropriate way of reverification from within a certain Chase Bank web page.  What the OP received was definitely a stinky-fish.

No thanks. If there is a problem, they can call me on the telephone to advise and then I will call back to verify they called.

I remember in 2010 they were still using a 4 digit numerical password.  The weakest security of any bank system I ever saw.

 

Port Arthur only has 1 local bank with 4 locations.  Everything else is an out of state conglomerate. Chase; Wells Fargo; Bssd whoever they are.

If you believe the news programs they have been penetrated a number of times since they opened up in Port Arthur.
