The Alliance and Leicester write to warn me about suspicious emails phishing for card numbers and passwords. What do you suppose is the scammers solution to this problem. Yes, you’ve guessed it. Send me an email asking for my username and password. Now how does that work, I wonder???
I hope you realise this is a scam. Just delete the email and don’t click on any of the links. They don’t take you to the A&L website.
