Internet users beware! The FBI is warning of a new internet scam.


It's a new scheme using spam e-mails that appear to be from the Federal Reserve or the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. When you open that e-mail, you're told there's a problem with your bank account and to fix it you must click a link.


The FBI says that link takes you to a phony website that downloads malware and grabs all your banking information off of your computer.
