Just a warning - in the past 2 days I have 2 emails that looked like they came from banks, asking me to update my personal details.
Yesterday's email said it came from HSBC (a well known, Big Bank that has branches in many countries). I don't have an account with HSBC - but it said in the email, 'Please ignore this if you do not have a HSBC account'.
That was a bit of a give away , but I still bet there were some people who fell for it.
I've just checked my email this morning. Two more - one says Halifax and the other HSBC (again).
There are a lot more than two floating around. Our office filter strips out over two hundred a day. Never respond to a link in an email. If you think the email is legit, go to the website on your own.
Let me repeat: Never click a link in an email!!! The only exception is an email you expected. Example: verifying an affiliate program on setup. Otherwise: Just say NO.
here was one from my local news this morning.
