According to this email, Bank of America has detected irregular activity on your account. It claims that you must verify this activity before you can continue using the account.
The email, which includes the Bank of America logo and seemingly legitimate footer details, instructs you to click a link to verify your information and regain account access.
Clicking the link opens a fraudulent website that has been built to emulate the bank’s genuine website.
Once on the fake site, you will be asked to enter your bank online ID and passcode. Once you have entered these credentials, you may be taken to a second form that asks for more of your personal and financial information.
After you have completed the form and submitted it, you may see a final message informing you that you have successfully verified your account.
But, using the information you supplied, criminals can now hijack your account, steal your money, and commit fraudulent transactions in your name. They may also be able to steal your identity.
Phishing scams like this are very common and target customers of banks and other financial institutions all around the world.
It is always safer to log in to your online accounts by entering the address into your browser’s address bar or via a trusted app rather than by clicking a link in an email or text message.
Bank of America has information about identifying and reporting phishing scams on its website.
