First Bank And Trust Scam

I wonder how many banks there are that have 'First Bank and Trust' in their name. In fact, you go to Google and run a search for that exact phrase, you get 55,000 web pages. Not bad.


So this scammer is not targeting one specific bank so much as a more generic name which may resonate with millions of banking customers. The downside, of course, is that they can't put any bank logo or other info in the email.

This is NOT from your bank, even if it is called "First Bank And Trust"! Don't go to the web page. Don't click the link.
