Bank of America Alert – Phishing

Haythem Elmir

I am seeing quite an aggressive phishing campaign against Bank of America arriving overnight UK time. They all pretend to come from Bank of America < > but are actually coming from various servers. I have posted details of 2 that I received. The emails are identical apart for the subject line. There will almost certainly be other similar subjects that I haven’t seen yet.

The subjects I have seen so far are:

  • Bank of America AlertSign-in to Online Banking Locked
  • Bank of America Alert: Unlock Your Account Important Message From Bank Of America Â®


They use email addresses and subjects that will entice a user to read the email and open the attachment. A very high proportion are being targeted at small and medium size businesses, with the hope of getting a better response than they do from consumers.

Bank of America or  have not been hacked or had their email or other servers compromised. They are not sending the emails to you. They are just innocent victims in exactly the same way as every recipient of these emails.
