Trust and Safety Department Llyods TSB Bank Please do not reply to this e-mail as this is only a notification. Mail sent to this address cannot be answered.
As I'm not even their customer,this is almost sure to be a phishing scam. But what did I get from their offshore cust service,"just delete the e-mail" very helpfull,can't even get local number.So a warning for others BEWARE,mind you most PC advisor readers will not be suckered in.
As you are obviously aware of these scams I would have also suggested sending it to Lloyds/TSB, there is a contact on their homepage of the website (as there is with all financial establishments) in order that they may be able to take action and therefore help people less fortunate.
As a customer of Lloyds TSB I should just add that they make it quite clear that any email originating from them will be addressed to you personally so 'Dear customer' or the like show it up as phishing right away.
I've been getting a number supposedly from other financial institutions that I have no business with and always delete before downloading.
Thanks finally found the link,and sent it on.As you's noticed the spelling mistakes in the copied and pasted e-mail.Their main mistake was sending it to a non Lloydes TSB customer.Other's may be duped though.I've heard of these scams but not seen one and it's not on the Lloyds website.Thanks all.
