Beware of "Bank of America IP-Conflict Detected On Your Account" Phishing Scam

The email message below with the subject "IP-Conflict Detected On Your Account," which appears as a Bank of America alert, claiming BOA detected multiple IP-Conflict on the recipients' online accounts, which will result in restrictions and closure of their online accounts, is a phishing scam. The fake email message is being sent by cybercriminals, who are attempting to trick their potential victims into visiting a phishing website that will steal their Bank of America online accounts' username and passwords, personal and financial information. Therefore, recipients of the fraudulent email message should delete it and should not follow the instructions in it.

    Received via email:

    "Fraud, because:

    #1. I don't have a Bank of America account

    #2. It was sent to me on September 10, 2018 and it tells me to always look at the security checkpoint in email to verify that the email is authentic then it tells me that I last signed in on October 9, 2018 which is a month in the future.

    #3. It even tells me it's an automatically generated email.
    The email looks really good with links to BofA privacy policy and member of FDIC, Equal Housing Lender with logo, their address, etc. A pretty good fake.

    happy to you!
