New (To Me At Least) Fraud Scheme

I got an email today, and the contents are in the embedded image.

I do NOT, NOR have I ever, had a credit card with this outfit (this is NOT to say that this message is POSSIBLY indicative of ID theft, i. e., there is a card in my name). So that was a major clue re phony. The second major clue was that the text of this email did not address me by my name.

IF this email was from a credit card company that I actually did have a card with, my first response would be to call their customer service to confirm whether this was a legitimate email.

I get a lot of this type of stuff I always go in to my real bank website instead of clicking on links.

I've had a telephone scam too. I called the bank on a different phone instead of doing the whole fake dial tone routine and as suspected the bank had not called.
