Has anyone else been getting spam mails from them? I've had a few over the last few days and I'm not a customer of theirs. I was wondering whether it is worth taking in a copy of the email with all the header information to the nearest branch as it is prob a scam. The one thing I don't do is click on links in mails of this kind. I simple delete the mail.
I had an E-mail saying I had won a million pounds on the lottery, It said the money was in an account with the Alliance and Leicester bank. It also had a convincing looking bank logo. Obviously a scam. Just delete it.
A&L say that they always address emails to the account holder by name and not with a general "hello customer". They will also quote the last four (?) digits of your account number with them so you can verify they have your details.
Even if I got an email with the above details I would not follow a link that needed my account/log on details but go directly to the banks site using your known www address.
But seriously, if you want to do anything about it then go to the appropriate banks website (do NOT follow a link in the email itself) and see if they have an email address to report these sort of things. If so then foreward the entire thing to them. If not, then look for some sort of customer service or general enquiries address.
