Abbey customers have been receiving e-mails (you also may have received this also if not a customer), asking for your details.

You know the drill, ''we will never ask you for pw's or customer account numbers etc..'' This is standard for all sites you need pw's for.

So if you're an Abbey user for on-line banking and you receive these mail messages in ne mail account (even if you're not a customer) then goto

www.abbey.com hit login and see details for forwarding the e-mail details of the scam.

You never know they might have a reward for you if a conviction is done.

Important warning about Internet banking fraud
Important notice – Wednesday 26th May – An e-mail alleging to be from Abbey is currently in circulation. The email asks users to follow a link to confirm registration information.
Please do not click on the link and do not enter any information.
Abbey will never send you an e-mail asking you to enter, reconfirm or change your security or card details. We will never ask you to tell us your passwords by e-mail or over the phone.
If you think you may have revealed your security details in any way, or if you receive any suspicious looking emails, please call us on 0845 600 4388.


THIS IS WHAT IT SAYS!!!!

I think the Abbey should rephrase about getting suspicious e-mails. I get like 600 suspicious looking e-mails every week.

Teach Abbey workers for spending all of their time surfing on the net for porn, sitting in chat rooms and swapping files.

A few years back I used to get mail from the bank telling me that I owed them money for my barclaycard. So I hid them in the draw and mentally blocked them out.

Did pay in the end tho :)

apparently to lure the less savvy into divulging their bank details you would send them to something like
http://www.barclays.co.uk@osnn.net/...n/include/and/a/popup/asking/for/bank/numbers
and they believe its barclays cause the url starts with barclays url (though its actually an HTTP Auth Username) and shows them the barclays webpage through a server side include and a popup (coming from their site) asking for the bank details, and because not enough people know that a bank will never do this, and enough people dont know enough about the web and things like this it seems to work quite effectively

Basically all bank customers will receive some kind of email scam like this.
I've received one supposedlly from Halifax, HSBC... and some other ones that I'm not too familiar with. :p
I never hit their quick link in their email, always closed the window and opened up a new browser and typed in the banks address manually. Long process, but safer than clicking on a link. :)

I think newest Mozilla has built in feature that warns the user with links like that I believe.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
