[Hoax] Important Notification From Punjab National Bank

>>>> This is another variant of Punjab National Bank (PNB) Hoax/Cheat mail.

If some one enters the details and submits the form, the details are sent to a page (PHP Script) hosted at: http://salamascuns.com/w.php

After snatching the sensitive information, the script hosted on the fake website directs the users to the a page on the official PNB website (http://pnbindia.in/english_web/mission.htm) - in a new window to make whole thing look genuine!!
