Bank of America Phishing Scam

The scammers are getting semi clever about the way they send phishing emails. Now if you straight forward the message to report them, the message doesn't come through. As a matter of fact the forward doesn't go through at all. Now you are wondering Barrudaki, how do you know this? Because I found it odd when I clicked forward on the suspect email and the message didn't appear in my forward response, so I forwarded the message to myself instead to see if it would go through. I did it four times not one forwarded message showed up. The text below is a copy of the email sent to me. As always links are disabled and please don't copy and the URL's indicated in the text below:

I still have not figured out what code is being used to prevent the forwarding of the email, but as far as I know copied and pasted all the code here so if we have any coders out there feel free to comment.
