Well, since I don’t have one, that would be a Neat Trick. But here’s the email:

Subject: Your Bank Of America Account is under review
Your Bank Of America Account is under review

Note about balances: Ending balance reflects transactions that have posted to your account and does not reflect pending deposits or withdrawals. The available balance is an indication of funds that are available to you today; however, it may not reflect all transactions that you may have initiated or authorized.ailable for withdrawal. It reflects the latest balance based on transactions posted to your account, including deposited funds, paid checks, withdrawals, and purchases made with your ATM Card or Debit Card. Please note that some transaction activity (such as outstanding checks and some Debit Card purchases) may take several days to post to your account and, therefore, may not be reflected in the available balance. Some deposits made in a store or ATM may not be immediately available for withdrawal or to cover other transactions.

Suffice it to say this is a phishing email of the worst kind. The embedded “sign on” links take you to this link (obfuscated):
In case you needed an additional hint, this is not a Bank of America website.
Conway Central Baptist Church will probably not be pleased that someone has infiltrated their servers and is using them to host phishing data; they have been informed.
But the website looks like this:
They want all sorts of information from you, including “Father’s Maiden Name” and “Father’s Middles Name.” If those aren’t screaming red flags , I don’t know what would be.
So many scumbags out there want your identity, your financial information, and your money, and they would sell their own mothers to get it.
Be careful out there.
