I knew the lull in (fake) bank emails wouldn’t last. This scammer is so desperate for me to log into their fake website that I was sent this 4 times!
NEVER click on a link in a bank email. Know the real address of your bank’s website and type it directly into your browser.
How do I know this is a fake? I’m not a customer of the Bank of Scotland! But if I was, I would still know it was a fake because of the link address.
Point your mouse at a link in an email (don’t click) and the address of the link will be displayed at the bottom left of your computer screen.
Look at these two screen shots. The first one is the link that is displayed in the email. The second is the link that is displayed at the bottom of my screen. Can you spot the difference? If you want to know how the scammers do this, use the box on the right to join the mailing list and you can download “anatomy of a bank phishing email” which explains everything you need to know!
