Suspicious e-mails

A member of community messaging has received an e-mail which appeared to be sent from a bank, but when the e-mail was opened it also shows the e-mail address of a named person. The member does not do online banking and has informed the bank.

The e-mail states:

“We have recently noticed that someone has made “3” suspicious attempts to log into your online account from this (IP) address. Therefore, our security commitment forces us to block your account temporarily until you verify your identity on our systems.”

This particular bank has confirmed that they do not send e-mails asking for confirmation of bank details.

If you receive any similar e-mails please inform your bank.
