NEW YORK (OCN) — If you are a customer of Bank Of America, you need to watch out for the following email scam that is being sent from firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you look closely at the link in the email, it takes you to a page on www.molnarb.hu (which was created by Heidi Wiesenfelder, Ph.D) instead of a site that is owned by Bank Of America and the email address has an extra ‘r’ (Armerica instead of America) in the email address.
At this time, it is possible that Wiesenfelder web site may have been hijacked for the scam.
