When I checked my email this a.m. I had a letter purporting to be from Bank of America. It said that it suspected "unusual activity" on my BofA account on "07/06/2009" and "they" wanted me to click on a link "https://www.bankofamerica.com" in order to "look at you statement" and then I could continue to use my account.
I immediately suspected fraud, simply by the date format. To an American, "07/06" means JULY 6th. [and we're not likely to use a 4 digit year either "09" would have been enough. How could I have had "suspicious activity" on a date which has not yet occurred?
When I rolled my cursor over the alleged BofA site, I noticed in the information area at the bottom of the browser it went to a website that was for "leilarosellaboutique" and it had a com after it then a forward slash, the word "image" and another forward slash and "boa" after that [I don't want to put this in a format anyone will click on in this post.]
I immediately called up Bank of America and reported it -- they had me forward the letter to firstname.lastname@example.org -- and they informed me that if they HAD noticed unusual activity in an account they would NOT have sent a letter to us, informing us to click on anything.
The email had convincing looking B of A logos, etc.
Don't be fooled -- if you see something similar, contact you own bank and forward anything similar you get to them.
Needless to say, I did not click on the link. But forwarded it, and deleted it, then deleted it from Mail trash.
