Subject: Sparkasse: Online-Banking
The senseless hash buster text at the end of the e-mail blows its cover. Why send an e-mail in one language and add strange text below in another language?
The layout and wording of this e-mail is based on a template commonly used for banking phishing scams, only the logo and name of the bank is changed in each e-mail. See also: Barclays Bank Phishing Scams, Bank Of Scotland Phishing Scams and Smile Internet Bank Phishing Scams.
