(KMOV) -- The FBI is warning citizens about a new scam to steal money from bank accounts. The FBI says the phony email appears to be from the Federal Reserve or FDIC, explaining that there is a problem with the user's bank account.

The email comes with a link which claims to help the user with their banking problem. In reality, officials say the phony website link in fact downloads bank information from the user's computer.

The FBI says to be extra careful when opening suspicious and unknown emails.
