Internet site shut down that targeted PNC Bank
PNC Bank had authorities investigate and shut down an Internet site early Tuesday after cyber criminals tried to "phish" sensitive information from people online, said a bank spokesman.
An unknown number of PNC customers and possibly non-customers received e-mail from someone posing as PNC saying their online bank accounts had been blocked and instructing them to renew online.
Once it detected the scam, PNC posted the rogue e-mail message on its site to alert people, said spokesman Pat McMahon.
The bank also provided ID theft protection tips on its site.
