    Got bank e-mails from all the main banks weekly, I only use one!!! :roll:

    Little bit of phishing going on there.

    Two giveaways -dear customer - your bank knows your name! And starting with 'has been receiving complaints from our customers' seems to be a phrase used by a lot of phishing emails!

    i sometimes get them from Nationwide, but i only have TSB

    People don't actually fall for these, do they?...........................

    If they do, then they fully deserve everything they get for being so dumb.

    One of the more literate efforts I've seen. Most of them are written in even worse English than a normal bank letter. :roll:

    banks will never ask a custome to click on a link in an email, they will always tell you to navigate to the website you usually use....

    I've been getting alot of these recently. Some of them do look convincing enough
