This poor scammer probably never heard of e-mail headers before, an e-mail's date is automatically recorded once you send the e-mail, so a date in the body of an e-mail is a bit redundant.
What are they actually trying to verify, the Bank of America Online Banking service or your current information? So they were trying to verify your information, against what? Consider the following: If they can't even provide a conclusive reason why the so-called verification failed, what kind of verification process is this after all. No professional institution will ever send you an e-mail containing a confusing an meaningless sentence like this.
OK, so if you acknowledge that e-mail is an insecure form of communication, why are you sending something like this. Would you trust an e-mail that contradicts itself?
An important lesson can be learned from this e-mail, if you pay attention to the smaller details you can easily spot the scam.
