DOD warns of scam targeting Bank of America cardholders
Another e-mail intended to scam Department of Defense personnel is making the rounds.
Some Bank of America cardholders have received e-mail messages of an urgent nature stating that they must reply immediately to avoid some adverse consequence, according to a warning sent out by the DOD. The scammers use the Bank of America letterhead and logo. Some scams include links that connect to a site that looks like the Bank of America Web site.
Bank of America does not send e-mails to cardholders, the DOD warns, and all e-mails of this nature should be considered to be a scam, and that recipients should not reply or click on any links. Bank of America will always contact you by mail to your home and not by e-mail, the DOD warned. If you receive a letter from Bank of America, call the customer service number on the back of your travel card and verify that the letter is authentic.
