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!
