The General Services Administration is warning the public about an e-mail scam asking for personal credit card information.
The phishing attack is supposedly coming from GSA's FirstGov.gov portal, firstname.lastname@example.org. It asks the recipient to click on a link for Money Access Online and submit credit card information to confirm the account as not been stolen or hacked.
GSA said recipients should not respond to these e-mails: It doesn't send unsolicited e-mails to the public in this manner and doesn't ask for personal information of any kind.
Officials added that the agency is investigating the phishing scheme.
