Phishing

The following is hilarious, like I care if they've blocked my "online banking". I don't have, and never have had, an account with B of A! I do have a PayPal account and received a similar phishing notice last week. Crazy out there. They'd really like me to update my non-existent account!

It's great that you don't fall for these, but it's sad to think that many people do.

There's too much evil in this world.
