Had an email from Lloyds TSB?

if you have,

It's a fraudulent attempt to get your banking details, the latest in a long line of them. If you click on the link in the email you'll see a very convincing form - please do NOT submit it. I have it on good authority that some people have already been taken in, and I would hate it to happen to any of our members.

It is very official and convincing but as we all know banks simply do not send these type of emails

Haven't had the current one yet, but they've tried before, as have various other 'banks'. As jonnytub says banks [or indeed any financial institutions] don't ask for this kind of information.

I had this one today purporting to come from The Woolwich.

I don't have an account with the Woolwich anyway.

I bank online with LloydsTSB. Warnings about this kind of email appear often during the logging-in process. So far I have never recieved one. I have recieved similar emails claiming to be from Ebay trying to get me to enter my details though.
