This morning I had an email in my Windows Mail inbox, allegedly from Bank of America, telling me I had only $1.68 in my checking account and to sign in to online banking through the email. Since I knew this was not my correct balance (and I never get alerts about my balance, ever), I called BOA immediately.
This is a fraud - but the scariest part is that the email did have the last 4 digits of my account number correct.
I was told by BOA customer service to forward the email to firstname.lastname@example.org and that emails like this one have been going out in the last few days.
No more online banking for me.
