Just got some lame phishing email with an .html attachment telling me I needed to urgently update my bank information or my account would be terminated.

Please tell me that this phisher is just a complete idiot who was too lazy to copy the bank's website onto his bpasfpapfefeepfkfme23.com domain, and there are no banks (or other institutions) that actually email users their login page...

There's always somebody dumb enough to fall for it. Phishing doesn't have to be sophisticated, because most people aren't. For every thousand folks like you who realize it's a trap, there's that one dummy who will fall for it.
