Bank of Scotland Business On-line Services Important Security Notification REF: 427

Now it’s the Bank of Scotland.  This phisher even tells me that if I am not a client of the Bank of Scotland I should ignore the email.  Now why would the Bank of Scotland send an email to someone who wasn’t a client, telling them to login to their account???  Sound phishy?  You bet it is.  That realistic looking link takes you to somewhere completely different – http://www0.bankofscotlandbusiness.com.idesrvid84.com 
If you want to know more about bank phishing – join our mailing list (in the right hand column) and download our free handout.
Just delete the email and DON’T click on the link.  It doesn’t take you to the bank’s website, but to a fraudulent site.
And if you’re sick of all this spam, install Spam Bully. Highly effective spam filter with built in features to help you track the origin of scam emails and get your own back on the scammers.
