Statement Information

A variation on a theme here.  No failure of the bank software, no warning about illegal attempts to access my account, no – just a statement.  Note the complete absence of information – opening balance = ****, closing balance = ****.  Just visit the scammer’s fake site, input your personal information and hey presto – ...
