Bank of America customers should always go directly to www.bankofamerica.com and sign into their accounts, instead of clicking on a link in email messages. Once they are signed in, they will be notified of any changes or updates to their accounts. Doing this will prevent them from being tricked into visiting phishing websites.
Bank of America (BoA) customers who have already been tricked by the phishing email message are asked to contact Bank of American immediately for help.
