There has been a recent phishing scheme associated with Bank of America. The email states that you need to update your SSL Certificate. SSL Certificates are NEVER sent by email. If you get any email asking for information for your bank, it is most likely a Phishing scam.
If you have received this message DO NOT RESPOND or click on any of the links. This has been proven to be a fake. If you still unsure call Cruzio Technical Support for a assurance.
"Phishing" is a scam tactic to obtain your personal information, more info at Wikipedia here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phishing
