I received this email the other day in my inbox. It is a black message with a pdf attachment file called USAA ONLINE NEW PDF MESSAGE FOR YOUR VIEW.pdf. The only email address I could find associated with this email is but that can easily be a hijacked account. Here is the text this pdf showed. It contained a link disguised as a legit USAA site which has you enter your personal information so the scammers can take it.
