Password Reset Phishing Scam

July 5, 2013

We are receiving reports of a new email scam asking non-customers to confirm a password reset request. The subject line is "Password Reset Confirmation." The email is pretending to notify the recipient that they have successfully changed their password. A link is provided in the email for the recipient to follow if they did not make a password change request. The link provided in the phishing email takes the recipient to a Japanese web site which appears to be compromised.

This is an email scam - do not click on the link in the email or provide any personal information. This email is not from First Interstate Bank and is in no way related to anyone at First Interstate Bank.
