Bank of America customers should not open the attachment or follow the instructions in the email message. If they receive email messages like the one above, they should go directly to Bank of America's website and sign into their accounts from there. If there is anything wrong with their Bank of America accounts it will be shown to them after signing into their accounts.

The attachment is a phishing Bank of America HTML form that sends the information entered on it to cybercriminals, who will use the stolen information to hijack their victims' accounts and use them fraudulently.

Therefore, Bank of America customers should never click on a link in an email message to sign or log into their online account, and should always look at their web browser's address bar to ensure that they are on Bank of America's website, and not on some other fake or phishing website.

Bank of America customers who have already submitted their information on the fake form, should contact Bank of America and change their passwords immediately.

    Here is another scam:

    "During our regularly scheduled maintenance verification procedures, we have detected a slight error
    regarding your Bank of America Account.

    This might be due to one of the following reasons:

    2. Submitting invalid information during sign up process
    3. Multiple failed logins in your personal account
    4. An inability to accurately verify your selected optional payment due to an internal error within our system
