Phishing spam is getting better ...

Gloria asked me to have a look at an email message "from" our bank.

 

Other than addressing her as an "esteemed" customer, it looked pretty good.  No problems with spelling or grammar.  A security warning at the bottom.  The head office address for the bank.

 

When I looked at the headers, there were only a few, very small, indications of possible problems.  It was sent from a domain that was not owned by the bank, but a lot of companies are outsourcing a lot of IT functions, so that wasn't exactly definitive.  It had a couple of headers indicative of spam filtering.

 

About the only thing that solidly demonstrated a problem was that the link to "verify" your account was addressed to a domain that was not owned by the bank.  (Now if banks start outsourcing account verification ...)
