Ha, that looks real legit. Scary thing is, no matter how garbage some of these are, how often these do end up working.

I called my bank about one I got that looked authentic.  They simply said, "We will never email you asking you for your password."

Eric- as Chris Ann said most institutions will never email you requesting this kind of information.

Great to be aware of things like this and to call the bank to confirm if anything looks suspicious.
