I received the following message in my inbox. I don't know what the
href line is doing

redirected to a bogus BOA update site.

Re: Can you tell me what this line is doing?
It's a standard phishing trick. The href line is where you would
actually be logging into, while the displayed text would show BOA.
This is to trick unaware customers into giving away their login
information to whoever runs www.irangardan.ir while thinking they are
logging into BOA.
Although as you have discovered, actions against these sites are
swiftly taken by the victim corporations the moment they are
