NO NO NO. Its a fake. No bank will ever ask for that type of information online or over the phone. Contact your bank by phone and ask them about it.

Seriously. Once they have your credit card number and PIN they will clean you out. Listen to The Howling Wolves.

Ok thank you all for help!! I will contact my bank tomorrow because they are closed right now. But there is another problem because another popup box is telling me that this site is a virus! I know this site is safe but the message says it is from windows firewall. Pls help!

Download Microsoft Security Essentials

MSE

Download MalwareBytes free version

MalwareBytes

After both are installed, go offline and run scans. I'd run MalwareBytes 1st, then MSE. I'm recommending MSE because it's the easiest for windows users to use.
