I got an e-mail from my bank asking me to confirm my account information.

This is a common online fraud technique called "phishing" where very authentic-looking e-mails are sent out that link back to a "spoofed" or replica website that looks and acts like the original, legitimate site.

The intention is to lure you into revealing personal identification or information that the fraudster can use to assume your identity.

No bank or reputable business will ever initiate this form of contact with you. Don't fall victim to these clever schemes.
