Bank of America Online Alert Phishing Scam

Would you share this Article with others?

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.

    I've received these bogus messages before, and once again today...

    I called the my local branch and they advised me to forward the bogus message to abuse@bankofamerica.com. To verify this, do call your local branch whenever you receive a bogus message.

    The above email is still circulating, beware!!!

    Copy link location on the email pasted the following :

    http://vbghakers.com/httpsbankofamerica/ httpsbankofamerica.com/capsol.php

    One would think the first part of the address "vbghackers" makes it pretty clear the site is fraudulent and an attempt to steal personal identifying information.
