Dear customer!Accurint cares about the safety of your means, therefore we constantly verify the ownership of the accounts. Two weeks ago we have begun to introduce a totally new system against fraud. This system has been created by our leading experts of the Accounts Service Department. Several brand-new technologies that have never been before applied in any financial establishment for the purposes of the Internet-accounts' safety have been patented during the development of the system. In order to prevent information leak and to stop any attacks of malefactors to the servers providing for the efficiency of this safety system, the particularities of the system are not disclosed.
The new safety system in itself is an absolute guarantee of the safe keeping of the means available on your account with us. While introducing this system we have found out that many accounts in our company are not used by the clients or have zero balance. This is the reason for sending out this letter. In order to prevent an overload of our servers during testing, our experts have decided to apply the new safety system only to active accounts. Therefore we are requesting you as our regular customer to please confirm your wish to protect your account. All you need to do is to access it right now: just click on the link https://secure.accurint.com/app/bps/main.
Please note that once your login and password are confirmed you might not be able to access the account immediately: this is a feature of the new system's activator. Therefore, in case you don't access the account at once, please enter your login and password again and continue working with us, enjoying the complete, total safety.
