    SCAM? I would think so...

    I just received this in my email. I don't even have an account at this bank. Why do they think that anyone would be so gullible? Check out what I highlited in RED. When you just point to the link to their website the bottom of my browser shows a completely different website. How do you vist someone? If this is a professional organization you think they would use a spell checker? Why don't I just save them some time by giving them an account number, credit card #, pin #, password, account balance, SSN and a time that they can steal the money when I'm not looking. Sheesh!

    Yup, but if they send out a million e-mails and only get a couple of suckers who fall for it, it's a success.
