The email activity alert below, which claims a Bank of America payment has failed and the recipients need to verify their billing information, is a phishing scam. The scam is being sent by cybercriminals to steal Bank of America customers' username, password, personal and financial information. This is done by attempting to frighten and trick potential victims into clicking on the link in it which goes to a fake Bank of America website that asks visitors to sign-in. But, any attempt to sign-in will result in the visitors account credentials being sent to the cybercriminals.

And, once the cyber criminals have received the stolen information, they use it to gain access to their potential victims' BOA accounts, hijack and use them fraudulently.
