in Bank Scam Emails by Scam Alert Editor

The good is these guys really screwed up with the email.
As you can tell, there are a few, hopefully obvious, issues.

1) No name in the To: block.
2) An attachment that is a .htm, never open these.
3) “Raw” html showing in the email, which they didn’t intend.

Seeing the raw email does give you some insight into how easy it is to place the official logo in an email to make is seem legit.

We opened the .htm file on a secure computer and discovered this to be a phishing scheme.
You can see in the image below that this does look legit on the surface.

The lower portion of the screen is where it becomes more obvious this is a fake…

So, note the Norton Secured logos…they obviously mean nothing.
They plan to get your SSN, Account number, DOB and home phone.
You’d be screwed if you gave this info as they could quickly drain your account.

Final obvious issue: Chinese text at the bottom.
