The people who send these need sorting big time :x
Just delete it. Simple as that. :)

it really is that simple.
It's called phishing. My SPAM filter puts most of mine straight in SPAM box. though I've never seen one with multiple listings before - if it was a single one each of the banks normally have an email address to forward them to, but you can get loads a day depending on how your email address is listed on the web. If you hover over link you'll normally see it's not the real web address of the bank.

Add it to your spam block list & delete it - good advice from thesaint :thumbsup:
Most online banks, have a report/spoof section. I know HSBC has, you usually fill in an online form and just cut and paste the offending email. Hope this helps.
