Phishers get sophisticated with Bank of America trademark emailks

Today I got a particularly mischievous phish purporting to be “Bank of America,” using the trademark "professionally" (and illegally) claiming that security settings had to be redone. What was different was that the cursor did not show any real link when passed over, and when I forwarded the email to the BofA abuse address, the BofA logo appeared automatically in the new part of the forwarded email. I hadn’t seen this behavior before.

The bank phishers are getting even more bold in simulating real life.
