Maine Bank Phishing Scam

A Maine bank has uncovered a phishing scam that prompts bank customers to reveal their bank card number and pin. The scam is started with a bank customer receiving an email indicating that the bank is upgrading its security system, has temporarily suspended the customers account, and asks that the customer call a number in the email to provide account information.
