Dear Washington Mutual customer,

We recently reviewed your account, and suspect that your Washington Mutual Card account may have been accessed by an unauthorized third party. Protecting the security of your account and of the Washington Mutual network is our primary concern. Therefore, as a preventative measure, we have temporarily limited access to sensitive account features.

To restore your card account access, please take the following steps to ensure that your account has not been compromised:

1. Validate your Washington Mutual Internet Banking account. In case you are not enrolled for Internet Banking, you will have to fill in all the required information, including your name and you account number.

2. Verify your Washington Mutual Card Information for any unauthorized withdrawals or deposits, and check you account profile to make sure not changes have been made.

Sincerely,

The Washington Mutual Team

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
