More noises

I get a couple of these every month… damn insidious.

Dear South Trust User,

During our regular update and verification of the accounts, we could not verify your current information. Either your information has changed or it is incomplete.

As a result, your access to online banking has been restricted. To start using your account, please update and verify your information by clicking the link below :


Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

Now, go ahead and click on the link above…. I mean it… go ahead.  You will be taken to a page where you can type in a user name and password in order to get to your “account”.  You can just enter any set of numbers or letters you wish as an account number and password and… voila, you are in.  The next page takes you to a place where you have the opportunity to give the “bank” your credit card number and all verifying information in order to “verify your account.”

There is a special place in hell for people like these guys.  I shudder to think of the number of newbie internet users who fall for this crap.
