Lloyds TSB Customers - phishing

  Sir Radfordin 13:05 29 Nov 2004

Been sent an email that links to:

www. lloyds-tsb. org/online_banking/Personal_Banking . php

Which was still live when I posted this A very 'real' looking site which is of course nothing to do with Lloyds TSB.

The advice as ever is to never give your details to anyone. The bank will never ask for all the letters of your memorable phrase.

The best advice is to contact your bank direct by phone if you ever receive an e-mail purporting to come from the bank.

NEVER reply or reveal any personal information via such a web site. Phishing has been going for a quite a time for various banks and building societies.

I got the "SunTrust" one this morning (I'm not a customer) warning about an Internet Explorer security alert and to click on a link....:-)

I do get e-mails from the Halifax but I'm well aware which is a genuine one.

This one seems to have been taken down now, though I'm sure they'll be back soon.

..much advice is given about not clicking on links in e-mails of this sort or, indeed, any e-mail links

I wouldn't fall for that, would I?

Well 10 minutes later I did just that when reading an e-mail from a genuine internet merchant that I deal with

How long before the scammers get round to these sort of e-mails? We all get them, and I guess most of us use the links embedded within them
