Anybody else got this email? I got it last week, complete with the Regions graphic.
It’s phony. First of all, I don’t do any business with Regions Bank, and I have no reason to have any “incoming Payments” there.
Also this language reads suspiciously like the Nigerian scam artists, doesn’t it? … “to VALIDATE your informations and wait for responds from Regions Bank ,” and “we apologies for any inconvenience.” Best of all … this is cute … it comes from a “security prevention” team. I’ll say.
Me, I’m not biting on this one. I don’t need their incoming Payment, informations or responds, or even their apologies.
This comes on the heels of a flurry of bogus Comcast “Security Alerts” emails with the Comcast logo.
At Regions Bank We are proud to announce about our new updated secure system. We updated our new SSL servers to give our members a better, fast and secure service.
Due to the recent update of the servers,Your incoming Payment was placed on pending status In order to receive this payment CLICK HERE to VALIDATE your informations and wait for responds from Regions Bank . . We apologies for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.
Sincerely,Christopher Polumbo Regions Online Banking Security Prevention Team
