Forgive me if this is not the best place to foward this report.
Today, April 29, I received a Regions online banking ("RegionsNET")

to this mailing. I have included the e-mail I received and removed my
e-mail addresses and session IDs from the header. This e-mail was sent
to phishing () regions com and bugtraq () securityfocus com .
