Phishing warning

Hi Marty,

 I just got off the phone with Scotia Bank with whom I have a business account. I had received an email from what appeared to be their corporate offices.  The email was dated the 18th of December and asked that I contact their office immediately and provided a link.

 By coincidence I had done banking on the 18th and was concerned that I had made an error however I became suspicious because they responded to my personal email and not my corporate one.  I then noticed that the link was to a provider. DUH!

 If any of your readers come across this situation simply foreward the email to phishing@scotiabank.com  they have a team looking into these fraudulent emails.
