So my girlfriend received this in her inbox today... She doesn't even have a CIBC online account registered, but she IS with CIBC.

From: CIBC.ServiceOnline.792-confirm-202@cibc-srv.101.53.64.122-unsuspend.101.53.64.122-omg7502.cibc.ca>;
Subject: * ID: 139 , E-mail ALERT! (July15 , 2012)

How ironic... This e-mail talks about preventing fraud when it's fraud itself...

When you go to the link, you get this page, which I'm sure can trick a lot of people who aren't too familiar with computers. So this is NOT the real CIBC website, and you can tell by looking at my address bar. "cosmoherbals.com?"

Enter any 16 digits, and anything for the password and it'll accept it.

SIN number? Wow... don't get tricked guys.... please... And ATM pin?!? Let's see what happens if I say I was born in year 9999...

"Please complete your questions and answer exactly as they appear on your account"... LOL

I was then redirected to the real CIBC website.

Gosh, this reminds me of a time that I saw a phishing site back when I was a little kid. It was a Neopets phishing site and I lost all my money and items and stuff. I laugh at them now because it's so obvious, but I'm sure these things trick at least 1 person every time.

Here's an experience I had one time. I actually typed a website in the address bar, but I made a typo. Only 1 letter off, and it redirected me to some other website. It was a phishing site that looked exactly the same!

Be careful about what you open in your e-mails guys... Remember to check the link in your address bar before entering any sensitive information. Sometimes the link may only be 1 or 2 letters off, so make sure you're at the right place. Even if you didn't open a link from an e-mail or something like that, check the address bar anyway.

Wow if they found a slightly better address, heck even I would fall for that, and have used online cibc for years...that fake site is bang on the real thing short of the web address. Checked and did not receive this email.

They did a good job. I have a CIBC account, never got the email. If it wasn't for the address bar it could fool a lot of people.

Nice bookmarks!

But seriously, this should not fool anyone anymore. The website, yes. The registration process, hell no.

I honestly don't get how people fall for these scams, and it's not exclusive to CIBC. It happens for all banks. The email alone should be enough for people not to go any further. You really think a bank would send such a poorly formatted and grammatically incorrect email?
