    Did some digging and found it online and found that this link
    Code:
    alerts.bankofamerica.com/customer/8239EPEOIQ89534/
    could download a Trojan called Troj/FakeAV-EZF. Once on your machine, Troj/FakeAV-EZF will modify system files, disable IE internet security settings and open a backdoor to download additional malware or allow remote control.

    So don't open the e-mail just delete it from your Inbox.
