The secret is always in the poor grammar

the www9 prefix is a bit of a clue, isnt it?

Never go to your logins direct from an email. always always visit their home page and go via that route.

The wwwX. is common, most sites use it for links, but the poor grammar triggers it for me..

" If you are not user of Royal Bank of Scotland Group please disregard this e-mail! "

You are not user!! Me are from nigeria scam, George AgddgdgdgdGwengo!

Yes, agree with the poor grammar...

Last year we were selling our BMW and were contacted by a man via email
regarding the sale. Straight away I knew it was a scam, well, almost straight away, but we played the game all the same.
Turned out he wanted us to sell the car, he would send cheque, someone would collect car ... easy.... Only he wanted to pay extra... to the tune of £3000 to a 'shipping company' as he was abroad! He then proceeded to send a cheque for £10,000.... £7000 for car, £3000 to pay shipping company. (Wanted us to send £3000 back via western union).... Crazy foreigner!!

I rang the company that the cheque had been stolen from(whole cheque book stolen), handed over the cheque and all his phone plus email details to police.

It did make me wonder had it not been for such terrible use of the English language, would this toe-rag actually get away with this with others.??

I receive emails like that every day and from banks im not even with. I have had phishing emails saying ive won the lottery every day for the last yearI Even had ones pretending to be from ebay and paypal. I never trust any emails anymore

Well done - perfect way to play them at their own game.

Doubt they would bother coming all the way from Nigeria :whistling:

Another big give-away is the lack of a secure addy; it should start HTTPS (not HTTP), you can then check the certificate attached to the site to check its legality.

NEVER click on a link that's sent to you, but if you fell the urge to do so anyway NEVER EVER click on one that doesn't start HTTPS and ALWAYS check the certificate:thumbsup:

I'm getting bank e-mails the same and similiar to the OP, I instantly delete them.

As someone else pointed out in the thread earlier, they even come from banks I don't bank with!!!
