This scammer tells me my Lloyds TSB account has been compromised. Highly unlikely – I don’t have an account with them.
Take a look at the email address this scammer has used to send out this fake email: email@example.com – definitely not a Lloyds TSB email. And that link in the email? Look where that takes you:
http://mail.opmcm.gov.np/locale/ar/LC_MESSAGES/online.lloydstsb.co.uk/customer.ibcWT.ac=hpIBlogon/Definitely not the Lloyds TSB site – someone has hacked into a Nepalese site.
DON’T click on any links in a bank email – even if it appears to come from your own bank. ALWAYS enter the address of your bank’s website DIRECTLY into your browser.
If you think you might have accidentally given your bank details to a scammer, contact your bank immediately.
