The second scammer, at the bottom of the page, has used one of those "fill in the blanks" scam templates, and forgotten to change it all - so although the email claimed to come from Egg, the contents tell me about my Halifax bank account. Note to scammer - must try harder.
NEVER click on a link in a bank email - even if it appears to come from your own bank. ALWAYS enter the address of your bank directly into your web browser.
These scammers are after your bank account and credit card details. If you think you have accidentally given your bank details to a scammer, contact your bank immediately.
