Halifax Bank – On-line SCAM — 3 Comments

  1. The default advice is NEVER to click on links in emails!

    Always go to a site via a bookmark or by Googling.

  2. I got the exact same email about a week and a half ago. I almost clicked the link but then I thought about it. I knew something wasn’t right. These people will do anything to get their hands on our details and cash. We really have to be so careful nowadays.

    • DBC thanks for your comment.

      They look so real, it is easy to fall into the trap. I have also lately started to receive lots of emails with zip attachments. I never open them as they could contain executable files.
