communicate with their customers.

We (PCMag) tell them if they get an e-mail from a vendor or a bank or
whatever and they're curious about it to go to the site through their
normal bookmark or by typying in the URL and to check their account on
the site that way.

The e-mails Paul sends are sort of lame, but the only link in them goes
to www.chase.com and I don't see how they could be used in a scam. It
sounds like the user needs a new activation code; if they go to the site
they will be prompted for it.
