This is a warning about a BancorpSouth phishing email with the following link:
BancorpSouth Online Services
The actual link used in the email is http://www.bxs.com294.cn/login.htm
This appears to be a China domain name, http://www.com294.cn
(call the China police!!!)
The bank’s official website is at http://www.bancorpsouth.com.
everybody has warned: Never click the link on the email. If you own an
account with BancorpSouth, always type this correctly into your
tada… you are… safe.
Out of curiosity, we did a quick check of the received IP address. Although the phishing domain is in China, the email appears to be sent from an IP address in Australia. We will not be publishing the email header due to some unclear information.
Anyway, it is still a phishing scam.
