Last Friday morning, I got this email from my bank. I clicked on the link, even though at that exact moment I had a sinking feeling in my belly that I was doing the wrong thing. Luckily, the window that came up said "Page cannot be displayed". Otherwise, my business might be in deep trouble financially.
I decided to print the email and take it to my bank, and when I showed it to one of the VP's, she said it is definitely a fraud. She told me, "We will NEVER email you for ANY reason. No bank will ever email a client."
I asked her if I had done any damage by clicking on the link, and she said I had not, since I didn't enter any identifying information. The person who fabricated this email is looking for passwords. I am so thankful he didn't get mine!
The oddest thing is that when I printed the email, instead of just the message above, I got what you see here below as well. At that point, I KNEW it was a fraud. I am hoping that this person can be caught, but apparently bad writing alone will not get him a jail sentence.
