Phishing Emails

Been getting pesky email spam lately. Especially all those Phishing emails? View the source of the email and post the real info about the spammers here.

An example is this email I got today

To review your account and some or all of the information that Bank of the West used to make its decision to limit your account access, please visit the link below:

http://www.bankofthewest.com/BOW/PP090292753form.htm

We thank you for your prompt attention to this matter. Please understand that this is a security measure intended to help protect you and your account. We apologize for any inconvenience.

But the real url underneath that link was for vds-365144.amen-pro.com/.BOW/PP090292753form.htm

amen-pro.com is registered and hosted in France to
