Criminals drain bank accounts and then send victims fake statements that make it look like the money is still there.

CrunchGear: Security experts are warning about a new trojan known as Zeus3. The malware steals online banking login credentials, which the criminals then use to transfer money to other accounts. To top it off, they then send victims a fake statement that shows the money still in the account. The worst news? No current anti-malware software can detect the Trojan.

The UK's M86 Security, which first discovered the trojan, warns, "We’ve never seen such a sophisticated and dangerous threat. Always check your balance and have a good idea of what it is."
