    Dear Sirs
    PHISHING SCAM
    RSA Inc (""), an anti-fraud and security company, is under contract to assist Nedbank Limited and its related entities ("Nedbank") in preventing or terminating online activity that targets Nedbank’s clients as potential fraud victims. RSA has been made aware that you appear to be providing Internet Services to a site, which is using such site as part of a “phishing scam”*. This activity violates Nedbank's copyright, trademark and/or other intellectual property rights and may violate the criminal laws of the Republic of South Africa, the United States and other nations.
    E-mail messages have been broadly distributed to individuals by a person or entity pretending to be Nedbank. These e-mails use Nedbank's name and identity (including trademarks, copyrighted materials and/or other intellectual property) without authorization. The e-mails request recipients to verify and submit sensitive details related to their Nedbank accounts by way of a reply e-mail to the fraudulent site or a link that leads the recipients to a fraudulent site displaying Nedbank’s copyrighted materials, trademarks and/or other intellectual property. The fraudulent site is located at the following URL address

    http://submit.myjotform.com/submit/20658570526558/
    http://submit.myjotform.com/submit/20661017524546/

    to which you provide services and which is under your control.
    The fraudulent site not only represents a misuse of Nedbank’s intellectual property; its purpose is to improperly obtain the personal information of Nedbank's customers in order to fraudulently access or debit their bank accounts. The owners of fraudulent sites typically perpetrate identity-theft related activities, such as using customer’s credit cards or bank accounts without authorization. In addition, since the vast majority of all of the e-mails are not being sent to actual Nedbank customers, the actions serve to damage the reputation and image of Nedbank.
    In addition to these necessary steps, Nedbank would like you to set up a redirect to the Anti Phishing Working Group (APWG) Phishing Education Landing Page at http://education.apwg.org/r/en instead of serving a 404 message or other error page when you disable a phish site. The APWG Public Education Initiative (PEI) has created a webpage to educate users about phishing. The page specifically explains that they have just fallen for a phishing communication (email or otherwise) and talks about ways they can avoid being victimized in the future. If you wish to learn more about how to set up the redirect, please read here: http://education.apwg.org/r/how_to.html.
    Please take all necessary steps to immediately shut down the fraudulent site, terminate its availability to the Internet and discontinue the transmission of any e-mails associated with this site.
    We understand that you may not be aware of this improper use of your services and we appreciate your cooperation. We specifically would ask that you also take the following actions:
    1.    PLEASE PROVIDE US WITH A TAR/ZIP FILE OF THE SOURCE CODE FOR THIS SITE, SO THAT WE MAY ANALYZE IT TO HELP PREVENT FURTHER ATTACKS.
    2.    IF ANY CUSTOMER DATA HAS BEEN CAPTURED THAT IS STORED ON YOUR SYSTEMS OR EQUIPMENT, PLEASE SEND US THAT DATA SO THAT THE CUSTOMERS TO WHOM THAT DATA RELATES CAN BE NOTIFIED AND TAKE STEPS TO PROTECT THEIR CREDIT.
    3.    PLEASE PROVIDE A COPY OF ANY RECORDS YOU MAINTAIN THAT INDICATE THE NAME, CONTACT INFORMATION, METHOD OF PAYMENT OR SIMILAR INFORMATION THAT MAY BE USEFUL IN HELPING LEARN THE IDENTITY AND LOCATION OF THE CUSTOMER FOR WHOM THE SITE HAS BEEN OPERATED.
    Thank you for your cooperation to prevent and terminate this fraudulent activity, should you have any queries kindly contact and Nedbank using the details below.
    Yours faithfully
