Coincidence? Receiving spam email re: bank deposits after actual depos

Recommended Posts

I know about the phishing scams about direct deposits but this situation seems scary.

 

Yesterday, I made a large deposit to my checking account at an ATM machine. Today I received two scam emails with the approximate amount of my deposit in the subject line.

 

 

The sender was listed as my email address but hovering showed "[email protected]": Subject "Re: $9950.61 deposit for (my email address)"

5 minutes later I get this email

 

Sender "Director Deposit" actually "[email protected]" Subject "(my email address's) Pre-Approval Notice [$9241.45] Pay Back in 3 years"

 

This is just too coincidental.

 

Any thoughts?

Couldn't find any info on the net for these names, but

 

Did it come on your phone?

 

I know I'd be on the phone first thing tomorrow morning with a print out of what you displayed here.

 

Any way to check your bank account balance today?, don't use any ATM to do that but only if you do some sort of online banking?
