Extremely unique deal. See link for more details. manchestereveningnews.co.uk/new…311

The van will be in Piccadilly Gardens from 12pm - 3pm on Thursday 5 October.

Thanks to Santander you can snag yourself a free fish and chips for lunch on Thursday and all you need to do is show staff a scam text message or email.

While this might sound extremely shady and borderline illegal it is almost the complete opposite. Banking company Santander want to help educate the UK about fraud using the nation's favourite dish.

The scheme is called 'Phish and Chips' and Santander are bringing it to Manchester's Piccadilly Gardens on Thursday October 5.

It will be a unique food van that accepts phishing emails and smishing (sms phishing) tests as payment for fish and chips, following research revealing a staggering 86% of Brits regularly receive these scams.

To get yourself a meal you simply present staff in the van with a scam phishing email or smishing text in exchange for a portion of fish and chips, along with a side of advice on avoiding the tricks criminals use in their attempts to steal people’s money and identities.

No idea mate. I accidentally bumped into Man.Evening, worth checking local newspapers as I believe it must be running on other locations.

It's a van going around the country to raise awareness of 'phishing'

When the chips are down.........

All I know is it’s “free”. And I guess that’s all it matters...

And for dessert, Ben & Jerry's Phish Food Ice Cream 500ml for £2.50 from Tesco & Morrisons.

If you don't think you have any spam emails, and are using gmail, log in to the gmail servers on the following link and click the spam folder, you will almost certainly find a few there. Gmail log in

Also, From the Manchester Evening News website:-

If, for the first time in your life, you are angry you have no spam emails or text messages fear not, you can take a short quiz to identify a scam email or text.

The van will be in Piccadilly Gardens from 12pm - 3pm on Thursday 5 October.
Each person targeted received an average of 16 fraudulent emails, texts or calls last year, this means up to 600 million phishing, smishing and vishing attempts potentially took place nationally in the last 12 months.

16 fraudulent emails *a year*?!

I receive more than that every day

No they want publicity, customers and profit. If there was nothing in it for them they would not do it.


Don't kid yourself this is anything more

I'm a Muslim but I don't say 'pish' this seems directed to people of Asian descent which makes it racist

Ah, they missed a trick.....it should have been free SPAM fitters and chips!

I wonder what kind of tax cut is Santander getting for that

Errr, no. PHISHING is a scamming term which means they are trying to 'fish' for data - Phishing is the attempt to obtain sensitive information such as usernames, passwords, and credit card details (and, indirectly, money), often for malicious reasons, by disguising as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication. See Wiki.
