I recieved an email yesterday stating:
Your Online Banking is Blocked
Because of unusual number of invalid login attempts on you account, we had to believe that, their might be some security problem on you account. So we have decided to put an extra verification process to ensure your identity and your account security. Please click on sign in to Online Banking to continue to the verification process and ensure your account security. It is all about your security. Thank you. And visit the customer service section.
This is a scam but, by me banking with Bank of America i responded and it took me to another website identical to the Bank of America website all except for the website address and the lock symbol at the bottom of the screen that represents that the sight is secured. But by me not realizing that the first time i was just nervous that my account was blocked and wanted to take care of it immediatly. So I gave my SS#, Account #, Bank Card # Mailing Address, and also my Access Id# and password which is used to get into the online banking for your personal or business accounts. So this person can now pretend that he or she is me.
So today I'm looking onto my statement online and i notice that $400.00 was transfered to another account with the name Lightner on it which i do not know and did not authourized so i immediatly contacted my bank and not knowing what i did the day before gave someone access to my account the told me that i had just been "Phish". So i than had to cancel my bank card and also move any additional $ that i had to my savings account and also change my user id and passwords. I also had to contact all 3 credit beareu and contact the Federal Trade Commission about this so that i can get fraud protection on my credit.
This has become a night-mare the economy is really really bad right now but for someone to do this to me is just almost un-real so i just want to post this to keep everyone informed on the lasted thing that is going on with banking if anyone has had anything similar happened to them please let me know. I will be spending alot of time to see what i can do about Prosecuting and finding out who this persone is the name is Daniel Lightner but i can almost guarenteed (99.9% sure) that this person is a person of stolen identity and that the real person didn't use their name... So so sad
