Some online banking customers have been receiving emails claiming to
be from Lloyds TSB, asking users to confirm their email address by
entering their confidential account details.
The link contained inside the emails may at first glance appear to be
legitimate, but it is a scam to steal users' account details and
potentially gain illegal access to accounts.
A typical version of the email follows:
Dear Lloyds TSB online customer!
For security purposes your account has been
randomly chosen for verification. To verify
your account information we are asking you to
provide us with all the data we are requesting.
Otherwise we will not be able to verify your identity
and access to your account will be denied. Please click
on the link below to get to the Lloyds TSB secure
page and verify your account details. Thank you.
