Alliance and Leicester Commercial Bank – Payment received.

A bit more convincing than the usual scam bank email, poorly written rubbish.  Still a scam.  NEVER click on a link in a bank email, even if it appears to have come from your bank.  ALWAYS enter the address of your bank website directly into your browser.

That link takes you to, which redirects to – NOT the A&L website.  Once there you are asked for all your confidential bank info so that the scammer can help him or herself to your money.

Delete the email.
