    old news mate, this type of email has been going round for at least a year.... along with similar email saying they are HSBC, Barclay's Llodys TSB, list goes on....

    General rule.......
    Never click a link from an email and enter your personal details.
    Always type the link yourself...

    I'm contemplating creating a Spam Roundup in HEXUS.tech-news, as some of the e-mails I get are absolute corkers.
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();
