Recipients of the fake or phishing email message who were tricked by the phishing email message should report it to Bank of Montreal before their credit cards are used fraudulently by cybercriminals.
Bank of Montreal (BOM) would never ask their customers to submit their personal and credit card information in a survey, therefore, recipients who have received email messages requesting the same information, should not follow the instructions in them. They should delete them instead.
