Recently a friend of mine received a suspicious email that appeared to be from her bank.  Thankfully she thought it was suspicious and asked my opinion.  Sure enough the email was a fraud that lead to a very convincing website.  The only thing that threw a red flag is that the domain did not originate from that of the banks.  Upon further investigation the hacker was hosting two fake websites as well as the picture above.

Keeping your information and data safe starts with you.  If you believe something is suspicious, question it.  Call the bank, store, etc that it originated from to check its legitimacy.  Below are sample of the websites with the fraud on the left and real on the right.
