Well, it finally happened to me. I checked my email this morning and saw an email from Bank of America in my Inbox. The subject line said: Bank of America reminder: please update your data! . I've read about identity thieves who make up websites that mimic an authentic website. I clicked the link provided in the email and a screen came up asking me to divuldge all my personal data -- Account number, password, ATM Pin #, Site key questions and answers, and, my social security number! WHOAA... :shock: Luckily for me, I run a Phising filter on my PC, which allows me to check and see if a specific website is reported as a potential Phishing website. It had not been reported as one, but I thought better of it all and I didn't update "my data". After all, I had been warned from various banking institutions that they "would never ask for personal data in an unsolicited email", and if they did, to be sure to check if the web address was an //https (secure) web address. In this particular case, it wasn't. I reported the website as a "potential" Phishing website to Microsoft. I have since gone back and re-clicked the link to review the information/data they requested, and now, the link is dead. I can only assume that Microsoft has put the kibosh to that link/address? Folks, protect yourself. If an email looks suspicious and asks for personal data, especially from a banking institution, don't fall for it. Call the Bank or institution and ask if they sent the email. It's a criminal world out there!
