Letters from a Financial Institution

The following is based on a real email from a financial institution with whom I do business.

RE: Access to Allied Liberty network

To our valued clients,

On a regular basis, Allied Liberty continually monitors suspicious activity attempting access to our network. Over the last few months, we have noticed a significant increase in suspicious network activity sourced from the Asia-Pacific portion of the world.

In order to enhance the security of our systems, Allied Liberty will be terminating access to its network and online products from this area of the world, effective March 1, 2006.

If you have any questions regarding these steps, please contact the Vice President of Customer Relations at (800) 555-5555.
