It Never Stops!

You would think that after some time people would catch on and the scammers would find a new way to entice us. But NO! It seems that what goes around, comes around. Here are two examples I recently received.


An email from Bank of America warning me that my account was locked and I needed to ‘sign in’ to unlock it.

Security Alert_ Unusual Account Activity Detected  (you can click on this)

If you look at the email and simply roll your cursor over the links you will see:

  1. It is addressed to ‘All Recipients’,
  2. Both the sender address and recipient link to ‘’,
  3. The ‘sign-in’ link points to ‘’ and
  4. I don’t have an account at Bank of America!
