Hi all, I have received email purporting to be from LLoyds TSB asking me to update my account details by clicking on a link in the email to go to the Lloyds on-line service to update all my details - I DON'T EVEN HAVE A LLOYDS TSB BANK ACCOUNT!! Hence this warning.
i had an email thought it was a scam. had a picture of pinoccio on a lloyds email. i thought no bank is going to have a character that tells lies advertising its products, also info about us was wrong on the email. printed it took into into out branch only to be told it was genuine email from the bank.
& to add to Peter's reply even if they (your bank)contact you by phone cause some of them do make sure you ask them to confirm some of your personal details before you go into details with them & if they are who they say they are they would have concrete knowledge of you.
most of this is a everyday thing & its common sense now that should kick in when reciving a email,however if your new the the net its a dangerous & worrying place,
i belive that now majority of online users are wise to these scam's or spam which in turn give's the offenders a hard time as most of them would struggle to make another scam.
