    This is a scam lol

    Got an email saying:

    Dear Customer

    Abbey PLC have been receiving complaints from our Customers
    about unauthorised use of their Online Bank Accounts.
    As a result we periodically review certain Customers' Accounts and temporarily restrict access
    to those which we think are vulnerable to unauthorised use.

    This message has been sent to you from Abbey PLC because
    we have noticed some invalid login attempts into your account.
    Due to this we are temporarily limiting and restricting
    your account access until we confirm your identity.




    To confirm your identity and avoid limitations to your Online Banking Access,
    Please click on the link below

    Thank You.

    You never had one of these before? Get about 4-5 a day (unfortunately)

    Stacks of these doing the rounds, none take you to where you think your going. And yet some people still login through them !!

    probably given them access to your computer just by opening the said email

    dont even open delete

    most of these will goto your spam box these days anyway if you have any half decent filter

    LOL at them sending it to someone that dosent have an Abbey account!

    I find it kind of funny actually, if they have restricted access to your account because they can't identify you why send an email providing a link for you to sign in when they have told you access is restricted.

    These kind of things come to mind when I read stories in the paper of people becoming a victim of online fraud even when they don't buy things!! Silly people.

    they dont select you individually...

    they re sent from bots or from other people opening them after installing bot on your computer and sending to all your contacts

    yes it does work as some people dont frequent forums half their life
