Government Savings Bank Warns About Unofficial App in iTunes

Thrift Savings Plan, a financial institution that offers retirement savings plan for federal employees, has issued a warning about a fake app in iTunes.

Here is more from the bank: “A free iPhone App, TSP Funds, currently being offered through the Apple App store asks TSP participants for their account login information. This app is not being offered through the TSP and the TSP does not recommend using this application to access your TSP account. Providing this information could result in a security risk to your account.”

The free app is still listed in iTunes from a seller named Steve May. The app describes itself as a tool for watching “performance data” for TSP customers. Check it out: “You have immediate access to the closing share price data along with the price change and percent change for all the active TSP funds. Select a fund to see its 45-day fund performance graph.”  (Via The Washington Post).
