I got another online banking phishing e-mail message today. This time, the scammers are targeting Bank of America customers. The phishing e-mail will try to trick you by sending a bogus Bank of America banking alert to you indicating that you need to update your billing information immediately. If you click any link in the e-mail message you will be taken to this web page http//swiatwenus .pl/Boa/ instead of the Bank of America website, which is located at https://www.bankofamerica.com.
