I haven’t posted a scam bank email for a while. I get so many of them that I’m afraid I can’t be bothered to post most of them. But I thought I’d post this one – as a reminder that you should never click on a link in a bank email – even if it appears to come from your bank. Always enter the address of your bank’s website directly into your browser. If you follow any of the links in these fake emails you will find a scammer asking for all your credit card and/or bank account log-in details.
If you think you might have accidentally given your bank details to a scammer, contact your bank immediately.
