    lol i was on my other email addy other day and got loads of them and im not even with abbey im with hsbc
    it look like its real and all it asks for is account details and a password i thing so they can update lol

    if anyones not sure i can post a screen shot incase they had one but beware i think its aimed at everyone not just abbey

    Tis really funny in a sad kinda way - i had 4 email yesterday from them.

    1. I don't bank online.
    2. I'm not even with them...

    Its easy to spot a fake.

    Hover over the link they want you to go to, and in IE, in the bottom left, it tells you where it would go. Thats an easy way to spot a fake.

    Also, no bank should ever email you telling you to log in due to security checks and all that.

    Just checking my email, I had one from The Abbey. I don't even bank with them! :giggle:

    Nope , just trying to be helpful

    It''s the new people to the internet that need to be aware. I know for sure I would probably have got caught in my first 6 months online. I only learnt from other people posting on forums etc. so long may that continue :thumbsup:


    Thanks to all for posting the screenshots etc, most helpful.

    their was a wiked one on ebay
    it was in the CAR section
    had a porno pic on
    and when you clicked on it to read what car it was it opened another page which then asked for your username and password(looked american)
    everyone had a laugh at it on ebay help cos the pic was so funny and their was some more VILE ones lol
    i wunder how they implemented it into ebay(ie used a normal looking sale but a pic to draw you in which opened another page up)surely ebay aint that daft to let this happen?or are they?
