To be honest, I think there's ALWAYS a phishing email going round impersonating one bank or another, I don't think they ever stop.

I seem to get a fair few of them in my email, but they are automatically recognised as such and stuck in the spam folder - I know for a fact that no bank email that gets to me is real though, since my bank does not have my email address.

Thanks for posting lowzer, it's always good to make sure people stay aware of dodgy email scams :)

I can't count the amount of times I've won the lottery and all I have to do is respond to some guy with a hotmail address with my bank details...:roll: :giggle:

the other email thats quite common these days are the greeting card ones or the "wow look at this!!" type ones. The links look okay but don't take you to the site you think it going to take you......

It worries me that some of the threads in the Misc section contain threads like this - although all so far have been posted by long established members and are genuine whats to stop a scammer registering and posting in the misc thread?

Maybe they have got board with Paypal!!!

Ive had these emails so many times its rediculous. Nat West, PayPal, Royal Bank of Scotland are the most frequent ones - but Paypals one(s) started the trend I think!

There's many different reasons they use to try and get you to log into your bank account, some are along the lines of them testing a beta site or the most common is probably that you need to login and verify some of your details. The login link will look ok but if you hover over it you'll find it's a completely different address, some are quite sophisticated and the link can look entirely legimate.

However, your bank, ebay or Paypal should *never* ask you to login to their site through an e-mail for any reason which is the easiest way to tell if it's a fake. If you do ever get any communication from your bank, ebay or Paypal it should be to your username/login and it should never ask you for your password nor ask you to click a link and login - they will always recommend that you go to the official site and do any work from there.

To be honest, some of these phishing scams are scarily convincing - I've never been caught by them but I have checked some of them out by interest. One of the Halifax ones was linking to their beta site to try out as they were moving customers across apparently. The e-mail looked just like the halifax style and clicking any of the links such as 'about us' or company information took you to the official site. Clicking the main link itself took me to a page which looked identical to the Halifax website and in fact every link actually functioned exactly the same as the Halifax site with any information links taking you directly to the official Halifax site. On logging in (with made up details), it showed an error similar to what you'd see if any website was causing problems and recommended returning to the 'normal' Halifax site to try logging in. By then of course it would be too late...

The best way to spot the bank ones is ( a ) They don't usually have your email address in the " to " section... and ( b ) the English grammar / spelling is usually diabolical, a dead give away.

No bank will ever ask you to put in your details via an e mail.

Also most of the scams say "dear customer.

Not "Dear Mr R Smith" etc.
