Regions Bank Scam

I have the worst luck when it comes to receiving spam/scam mail.  From earlier today:

Regions scam

So what makes it a scam?  Well the first small clue is that I don’t have accounts at Regions.  Second, that hyperlink in the middle that appears to be directed at http://www.regions.com actually redirects to  www.lapuertacarpinteria.com.  Regions doesn’t redirect customers to third parties…..particularly third party websites that appear to be owned by a a carpentry business in Mexico.  Third, neither Regions nor any other banking institution sends emails telling you to update and verify your account information.  A financial institution would already have your information.  Forth, unlike me Regions typically doesn’t send out email with spelling deficiencies.
