Apologies if this has already been covered. I did try a search but it proved rather fruitless.

I've been contacted by the 'Bank of America' stating the following:

Dear Bank of America Customer,

we have detected a slight error in your account information.
To securely confirm your personal information please click on the link bellow:

online banking and finance to avoid identity theft and fraudulent activities on
your account.

activity.

Of course, I've never had a profile on their site, in fact I've never had any contact whatsoever with the BOA, so I know this is a scam.

However, I can't understand what they're hoping to achieve. The link goes to what I believe is the official BOA site but to a page that doesn't exist.

Anyone have any info on this one and how it can be handled?[/i]

Moved here, most ordinary phishing mail. I'm always happy to hear from people who don't get 300 of them a day and have never heard of phishing. I wish I was one of them.

Yeah, I guessed it was phishing, just not a particularly good example (i.e. sending potential victims to a missing page at the actual bank).

Is this worth pursuing?

That wouldn't make sense, would it? The link you quoted above wasn't the actual link in your phishing mail. Every phishing mail will work like this: www.hardcoreporn.com
