Complete The Phishing Test For $50
Greedy users might get upset if the recently-completed test won't bring them the promised $50. Should we tell them about the possible identity theft?

“You are invited to take part in our nation-wide 5 question survey. Your time is very important to us so $50 will be credited to your account upon the completion of this survey.”
Also, the recipient is told that no sensitive information will be required, collected or stored, so nobody gets the wrong right idea.
Needless to say, the email comes from an address that has nothing to do with JP Morgan Chase. However, it is expected that naïve users will be convinced that the study is genuine and will gladly give phishers their full name, Zip Code, Card Number and PIN (see image).
After all, what can go wrong? Well, just don't try to find that out by yourselves.
