Beware ....Gone Phishing

I just wanted to put out this friendly warning if you recieve this email (like the one pictured) from "Bank of America " please be smart and just delete it. It's a phishing operation and will direct you to phony looking Bank of America website. If you are a B Of A customer contact them yourself via phone or use your bookmarks.

* To report a suspicious email that uses Bank of America's name, forward it to us immediately at abuse@bankofamerica.com.*
*https://www.bankofamerica.com/privacy/Control.do?body=privacysecur_unauthorised_acc_use#email*

Funny thing is I don't have a Bank of America account and have never done any business with them. Just remeber becareful out there are a lot of bad people that want your money.

Just some more helpful thing to keep in mind, this from B of A a reply;

For general account inquiries, or other fraud-related events that do not include fraudulent emails, please call the customer service number located on your account statement or refer to the Reporting Fraud section of www.bankofamerica.com/privacy.

Some things to keep in mind regarding fraudulent emails:

* Unlike phishing emails, we will never ask you to verify personal information in response to an email
* Most fake communications convey a sense of urgency by threatening discontinued service
* Many fraudulent emails contain misspellings, incorrect grammar, and poor punctuation
* Links within the fake email may appear valid, but deliver you to a fraudulent site
* Phishing emails often use generic salutations like “Dear Customer,” or “Dear account holder” instead of your name
* The address from which the email was sent is often not one from the company it claims to be
