Kenosha police warned residents Monday about a scam email claiming to be from Chase Bank, informing the target that their account had been closed.

The police said in a Facebook postthat the email informs the user that their Chase Online account had been recently closed due to a suspicious login attempt. To reopen it the user needs to click on the link provided in the email to start the process.

The link in the email takes the user to a page where they are asked to input their account information. If provided the bank account will likely be emptied by the scammer.

Kenosha police believe they are trying to target the elderly, and asked residents to warn their parents and friends about this scam.
