Hi.

 

Frankly there are many of these sent on a daily basis to users of all ISPs for phishing attempts to gain bank, building society, email and ISP (and a vast array of other accesses) user details.

 

This particular email is not necessarily sent to all BTYahoo users, since the scammer will only have a subset of email addresses.

 

Please can you go back and alter your post to remove the link, since it has not yet been picked up by browser recognised forgery systems (at the time of my posting).

Yes unfortunately some people do fall for it! These emails get more realistic. Advice Is check email..Sony had the problem of emails being stolen on there playstation network breach and warned All users to watch out. So BT you NEED to check for Any data breaches!!! My email got used and interested to now if Anyone else got email the same as this!

Thanks

I think a look at the average facebook feed will prove there are still plenty of numpties who shouldn't be allowed within 3 miles of a computer
