The targets here are customers of Bank of America and Wells Fargo. The messages read as follows:

BofA customer your account has been disabled!!!

Please read this readmybank0famerica.cipmsg-importantnewalertt(dot)com

I think I’d probably be faintly worried if my otherwise sober and businesslike bank started sending out messages with more than two exclamation marks in a sentence, but even without that, observant recipients would notice they also added an extra “t” onto the end of “alert”.

The other message reads as follows:

(wells fargo) important message from security department! Login
