Bank Of Ireland phishing e-mail – would you fall for this?

A friend sent me this e-mail phishing attempt from a month or so ago – pretending to be a Bank of Ireland originating e-mail.

Looking at the basic text of this e-mail, would you fall for it?

The clincher, that you should watch out for in case you thought this was legitimate, is if you see the link that the “Continue to Log In” button would be bringing you t0 – it’s not a Bank of Ireland website at all.

    If only these guys used proper grammar and spelling they’d do way better!

    i wouldn’t read past “dear valued customer” as genuine emails include your full name.
