Online Banking Alert

I receive more scam emails for the Abbey bank than any other.  I hope you know that you should NEVER click on a link in a bank email, even if it looks as it if comes from your bank.  ALWAYS enter the address of your bank website directly into your browser.

If you point your mouse at a link in the email and DON'T CLICK - you will see the address of the scammer's website.  Usually it's an obvious scam, but some do try to make the address look as if it might be a bank website.  

No bank will ever send you an anonymous email telling you to update your details online.  It just doesn't happen.  If there is a problem with your account, go into your nearest branch and discuss it face to face with a member of staff.

Just delete this email and don't click on any links.
