"This procedure is attributed to a routine banking software update"

I think this is the new "all your base are belong to us"?

It comes from this email

Dear BusinessDirect client,

Security and confidentiality are at the heart of the Commerce Bank.

Your details (and your money) is protected by a number of

technologies, including Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption.

We would like to notify you that Commerce Bank carries out

client details confirmation procedure that is compulsory for all

our customers.

This procedure is attributed to a routine banking software update.

Please visit our Client Confirmation Page using the link below

and follow the instructions on the screen.

I have received three of these today with different bank logos in each!

How can people still be so stupid as to provide their bank details in response to these emails?

As for the people who send these, I'd just love the opportunity to drag one away from his terminal by the hair, and kick him in the bollocks! What a worthless bunch of pimples on humanity's anus. Rather like politicians.
