The "Invalid Logon Activities" email activity alert below, which appears as if it came from Bank of America (BOA) is a phishing scam that is being sent to potential victims by cybercriminals. The phishing email has been created 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 opening the attached phishing HTML form and submitting their information via it, which will be sent to the cyber-criminals responsible for the phishing scam. And, once the cybercriminals have received the stolen information, they use it to gain access to their potential victims' BOA accounts, hijack and use them fraudulently.
