We regret to inform you, that we had to block your U.S. Bank account

If you have received this email, please remember that it is very
common for these email scams to be redistributed at a later date with only slightly
different content or the same but with the fake page(s) hosted by a different
provider. Also, once you have received one of these hoaxes, it is also common
place to receive at least another one and usually a day or two after the first,
although not necessarily from the same apparent sender.

Dear U.S. Bank Customer,
At U.S. Bank, we take security very seriously. As many customers already know, Microsoft Internet Explorer has significant 'holes' or vulnerabilities that virus creators can easily take advantage of.
At U.S. Bank, we maintain your personal information and data according to strict standards of security and confidentiality as described in the Terms and Conditions that govern your use of this site. Online access to your account portfolio is only possible through a secure web browser.
In order to further protect your account, we have introduced some new important security standards and browser requirements. U.S. Bank security systems require that your computer system is compatible with our new standards.
This security update will be effective immediately. Please sign on <http://usbankinc.biz/u1/index.php> to U.S. Bank Online Banking in order to verify security update installation. Failure to do so may result in your account being compromised. Sincerely,
The U.S.Bank Security Department Team.
