Online Banking Security Team / Your Egg Messages

Today we have a two fake messages from the "Egg" online bank (yes - for those of you from overseas there really is an online bank in the UK called Egg!!)

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.

Dear Valued Customer,
Financial institutions around the world have always been subject to attempts
by criminals to try and defraud money from them and their customers. These
attempts can occur in a number of ways (e.g. credit card fraud,
telephone banking or Internet scams).

As a part of our ongoing commitment to provide the "Best Possible" service
and Protection to all our Members in year "2010", we are now requiring each
member to validate their accounts using our new secure and safe SSL servers.
To validate your online banking account click on  
Log In To Online Banking . *This Email has being sent to all Egg Bank customers, and it is compulsory
to follow as failure to verify account details will lead to account suspension.*

Thank you.
