...One of these emails from any bank saying that your account will be suspended, it tells you to go to a link in order for you to see your account information, DO NOT CLICK ON THE LINK!!
Here is the e-mail:

This e-mail is to inform you that your account will be suspended within 48 hours due to your Account

Inactivity. You will have to confirm certain Account Information in order to continue your account

subscription.



Verify My Account Information - Hyperlink that leads to a randomly changing address but nearly always with the ending: /cart.htm(l)



You can help us provide you with the most relevant information by

taking a moment to tell us your e-mail preferences.


And of course you can unsubscribe at any time.



Remember, Lloyds TSB Bank is committed to your security and protection.

To find out more, take a look at our Information Security section

under Privacy and Security on the Web site.

Once again please do not click on the link, it is a forgery!!

Just some info you might like to know if you live in the UK!

The amount of times I got that email before I had a Lloyds TSB account 8-)


I think it should go without saying that you should ignore any emails from Banks, Nigerians asking for help with transferring money, and all the other miscellaneous spam or chain emails that go around.

They're all full of complete crap that will only lead to a negative outcome.

I've had this one to. First I thought that there was something wrong or so, but later I saw that this could never be true because I don't have a bank account there.

Announcements is for site announcements, not to announce the 20% off your v14gr@

Plus if you actually click these links, then you're a fool.

I suspect they send those ads out just to [censored] people off -

There certainly isn't a profit motive -
I tried responding to some African king's banker -
and no reply :(

Ditto, I once responded to an african bank scam saying that I was interested in his proposal, and if he could send me more details, no response.

A lesson to anyone would be to never verify your details EVER from ANY company if asked by e-mail. And never supply passwords or security codes of any kind.

Up until last week, for 2 months I got about 5 of these a day, eventually I stuck the keyword "Lloyds TSB" into my block filter and so far none have slipped through.

I don't use catch-all for the simple reason if someone can't spell thats their problem for the e-mail not reaching me :) The only addresses I use are webmaster@ so its not difficult to spell or know.

I rarely ever check catch-all, and I don't have it on all of my domains. I get a good enough idea of the crap with the size of the folders on the server xD
