The following (sad) letter yesterday from reader H demonstrates why phishing works:
I have an e-mail telling me that I have an online banking account with Bank of America. We have never used or will use the internet for banking.The mailing requests information. Is this actually a mailing from your bank?
The email address of the sender is “Bank of America”
Please share what you know about phishing with your friends and family. Below are some links that will help educate them so that they don’t have to rely on their instincts to spot a fraud.
