Does This Scam Really Work?

I had a little chuckle with an email I received. The text of the message started out like this:

Dear Customer,

We recently reviewed your account and suspect that your University of Virginia Community Credit Union Banking account has been accessed by an unauthorized third party. Protecting the security of your account and of the University of Virginia Community Credit Union network is our primary concern. Therefore, as a preventative measure, your account has been locked due to inactivity or because of too many failed login attempts.

Since I apparently forgot that I had a UVA Credit Union account I thought I would check it out and click on the link. Click on the screenshot thumbnail to see the full page:

I just love that it asks for an “Atm Pin”. Cute.

By the way, the other links on the page don’t work. Imagine that.
