Neither do I. But, at least these fraudsters used correct grammar,
hehe. Earlier, I received a U.S. Bank phish. The graphics looked
official enough ... but here's the first sentence, quote:
"As the Technical service of bank have been currently updating the
software, we kindly ask you to follow the reference given below to
confirm your data, otherwise your access to the system may be blocked."
Just the first 8 words were enough to convince me it was bogus. I'm not
a U.S. Bank customer either ... but if I was and had gotten such a
poorly written letter, I'd have printed it out and taken it to a branch
to take care of the problem ... and suggest the letter-writer take a
remedial English course, hehe.
