The Bank of Montreal appears to be the Canadian bank of choice for the identity thieves. The most recent goes as like this:

BMO July 4

The biggest clue is the sender of the email – not even a mention of a bank in the email address the notice came from.

For some reason BMO, ScotiaBank and TD seem to be the choices for the identity thieves that have us on their target lists.
