Verify Yourself

This is an email that I received a few minutes ago. It is your typical phishing email which includes a link for you to fill out your personal information. Your information will then go to someone who can use it to steal your identity. It is not very authentic looking however people can still fall for this. One major sign of this is the fact that they don't even say what company they are from. The email came from The link was removed to prevent peoples information from being gathered.
