Oh no! Several stormy rainfall!

Phishers are already using the US hurricanes as the pretext:

"... After several stormy rainfall occurred recently, We regret to inform you that a computer failure has affected some of the modules of our systems notament sending wire transfers and credit card payments online.  But our teams have set up a verification process and reactivate your account.  To complete verification, you will be taken through the following stages:
 1. Input your Personal Information

 3. Input your Online Banking Information
 4. Click on Continue ..."

Anyone gullible enough to believe that 'several stormy rainfall' is enough to knock out a bank's computer systems and require them to 'verify' themselves probably shouldn't have a bank account.   :-)
