Never verify your info from an email with a link, NEVER use a link sent to you in an email. There are scammers that go to great lengths to build web sites that look exactly like the true site. These are forgeries and looking to obtain information to steal your idenity and banking information, anything to give them clues as to passwords and such.

Always go to the website through your browser and log in through the website as you usually would.

Thanks for the info. I've gotten some from my bank and they are asking the same thing. I went to the bank and they said they NEVER send emails like that. Also got some from credit card companies that I don't even have. Watch yourselves out there Marines.
