A new phishing scam targeting Chase bank customers has been discovered that not only asks you for your personal information, but also requests that you upload a selfie of yourself holding your ID or driver license.

Phishing scams have become so common that they tend to become a blur. That is until one does something a bit different and makes it stand out from the pack.

Such is the case with a new Chase bank phishing site discovered by MalwareHunterTeam that starts out like all the rest, but then rolls out a extra trick at the end.

Like most phishing sites, when you get the scam’s landing page you will be greeted by a convincing looking login form to access your Chase online account.
