Phishing attacks attempt to capitalize on Chase data breach

The Better Business Bureau has issued a warning after the massive data breach at J.P. Morgan Chase.

It says consumers should expect a wave of phishing attacks from scam artists attempting to capitalize.

On Thursday Chase announced that more than 76 million bank accounts were compromised.

The bank says that no account numbers, passwords, or social security numbers were stolen. However, the bureau warns that scammers will use the announcement to scare consumers into providing that sensitive information.
