The fine print

This is the fine print that came with a very good Phishing attempt from what looks to be a good BOA web site. I don't have a BOA account and never did, nor will I ever.

Beware if you see something like this. It is not legitimate.


"Your account might be placed on restricted status. Restricted accounts continue to receive payments, but they are limited in their ability to send or withdraw funds. To lift this restriction, you need to login into your account (with your username or SSN and your password), then you have to complete our verification process. You must confirm your credit card details and your billing information as well. All restricted accounts have their billing information unconfirmed, meaning that you may no longer send money from your account until you have reactivated your billing information on file."

Suckers born every minute from these type letters. I've had a lot of banks do this to me and all are false of course. Yet, some folks fall for this and get ripped but good.

If you contact yor bank/credit card co. they should have a weeb site you can foward these e-mailes to and they investigate them. The phoney ones look more like the real then the real. The catch is the real will never ask for that info over the internet. If you are not sure don't open but call your bank/credit card co. and ask.

Some sound so fishy (or is it phishy) I just delete them without a second thought.

I have received some official emails from businesses I deal with and I am suspicious of them so I don't click on the provided link, but click on my bookmark to be sure I'm on the official web site.

NEVER contact your bank or credit card company through a link to a web site or phone number sent to you in an email! Use the phone number on the back of your credit card, the phone number on your bank statement, or the phone number you may already have programmed into your phone. To log onto your account on the internet, do as as Route 66 says and use your own bookmark, and look for https:// in the address line BEFORE you enter your password or any sensitive information.

We got a call a few weeks ago about suspected fraudulent activity on our credit card. We told them we would look up some receipts on our end and call them back. Then we called back using the Customer Service phone number on the back of the credit card instead of the number they gave us. Turned out in this case the call was legit - there was someone trying to use our credit card number, but we avoided any potential problem by calling back using a known, good phone number.

If BOA was my bank, I might report it, but with BOA's predatory practices, I'm not going to do anything remotely beneficial for them. They're always the first in the news when it come to screwing over their customers and the last to correct a bad decision. As always, YMMV.

The problem is most of these come from overseas and the U.S. can do nothing about it...No they cant shut them down overseas..

Never (ever) click any link in an email. Never. You will avoid 99.9% of all phishing attempts by following this simple advice. Never. There is never any reason to click a link in an email. Email is a very simple technology and is easily spoofed and forged. Links can be made to look like they are legitimate, when they actually got to someplace totally different. Never click links in emails. (never, ever)

About 6 months ago, I set up a scammer by creating a phony email address and Craigslist account. I gave him my password and he totally trashed my add with bogus HTML code. I kept him going and got his info, then reported him to the Cox spam police. Last I heard, they were pursuing him and thanked me for my effort to put these maggots behind bars. Would I do it again? Naw... not worth the time and trouble, but I did give him reason to doubt his heritage and the medical history of his mother.

Is there anything wrong with the email address of the low-life phisher?
I added the spaces so it wouldn't appear as an email.
