I received an email tonight that looked like that. I blurred out those credentials because i don't want people logging into 'my' account. As you can see in the picture, they made some gramatical errors(if you read), i circled some words that were messed up, and they gave an IP address. I did a WHOIS on the IP address to find that it was Verizon's IP...

Second of all, i showed you some URL's in the picture. Those urls are subdomains, and they are hosted by 'ddns.nu' (bpa.nu)
I also noticed they try and get you to log in. No matter what.
Thirdly, I don't use 'Bankone,' i use First National Bank.
Taking all of this into account, i'm going to have to assume that this is an attempt of scamming me out of... something... i probably don't have...
Just be careful what you log into and who/what you give your information to.
