The email message contains a Discover logo that appears authentic. The address in the “From” line is a hyperlink that reads Discover Bank but appears as email@example.com as shown below and if the recipient rolls over the link in the message.
The url that appears when rolling over the link “Begin the Secure Update Process” appears to be a redirect url:
The verification message is not from Discover Bank and the recipient of the message should not click on the links in the message. The Fraud and Account Protection page at Discover.com can be accessed at https://www.discover.com/credit-cards/help-center/faqs/fraud.html#q8.
I have copied the original email below:
