Door-to-door alert: Non-electronic ‘phishing’?

Sounds like common spam e-mail, but it turned up on Brittany’s door:

Just wanna give you guys heads up that this afternoon between 4 & 4:30 my boyfriend working outside came in to find a note around our door knob giving us IMPORTANT notice that our “Chase” account needed attention. The notice was in both Spanish and English. The person walking door to door made not effort to speak with him as he was in the yard working thus leaving us to believe this is not a true important notice along with the fact that this was a at home printed note with no chase logo anywhere.

  1. Did it have contact information on it?
    How did they expect you to give them your “phished” information?

  2. There was a toll-free number to call. I called it and it claimed to be Chase and immediately asked for social-security/account number information. Googling the number has brought forth both claims that it’s a scam and claims that it’s a legitimate Chase Mortgage-related number (though the notice, which Brittany photographed and attached – I’ll add it tonight, though I couldn’t at the time I posted this – indeed looks too crude to be official). – TR
